In its Gas Turbine Development and Manufacturing Center in Berlin Siemens runs a test bed for gas turbine prototypes. Since the end of 1998, the new model V84.3A gas turbine has been undergoing tests at this facility. One focus of last year’s tests was on flow field measurements with pneumatic probes in the exit flow duct of the turbine at various load levels to characterize the flow in the diffuser and provide a data base. Another item was the further investigation of the compressor surge margin and the validation of a newly-developed on-line surge prediction system.
