‘Single-Blade’ Diverters are now a standard component of gas turbine combined cycle and co-generation plants. The paper explains the key features which have to be considered in selecting a Diverter, such as the sealing system, flap assembly construction, drive components and actuation systems. Further the latest hydraulic operating systems are described. With these it is now possible to use Diverters to finely regulate the heat input to the recovery system as well as to switch over rapidly to simple cycle operation or auxiliary firing. Finally the paper shows how it is possible with a two module Diverter to avoid using separate Isolators (dampers) even for the largest gas turbines currently available.
