Good aerodynamic design of the compressor intake contributes to a gas turbine’s performance and compressor surge margin. The combination of empirical design correlations, optimization with CFD and experiments leads to a successful design. The GT24 compressor intake was tested in a rig test. Both tests from the rig and measurements from the first GT24 at the Gilbert power station confirm a low level of losses and flow distortion.
