The LM6000 Gas Turbine was formally introduced at the IGTI Gas Turbine Conference in Brussels in 1990. It was immediately accepted for power generation/cogeneration applications; however, inquiries were received concerning the use of the LM6000 gas turbine for mechanical drive applications. These inquiries included the amount of power available with decreasing gas turbine speed, breakaway torque capability and resonant free operation over a broad speed range.

This paper discusses the engineering studies performed to ensure that the LM6000 will be a suitable power source for mechanical drive applications in the 30–40 MW power range.
