Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd (KHI) have developed a new industrial gas turbine, L30A. The turbine section composed of two-stage high pressure turbine and three-stage low pressure turbine. In the development period, a commercial pyrometer system was employed to measure blade temperatures under real engine condition. The pyrometer was equipped with an updated detector module and could measure lower temperature compared to the conventional one. Thus it could be used to measure all stages of blades with one pyrometer. The validity of the result was demonstrated by comparing the result with data obtained with other conventional techniques. With the pyrometer system the temperature distribution on the blade surface was easily available and cooling capabilities of blades were evaluated without taking much time.

This paper describes the detail of measurement and evaluation process.
