Steam injection tests have been carried out on Ruston TB5000 and Tornado gas turbines. Steam was injected into the primary zone of the combustion chambers and the centre casings of both engines. Both engines were operated in twin shaft mode and the Tornado also in single shaft mode. The engines have been characterised for performance, emissions and combustion stability. Operational criteria have been defined and the thermodynamic changes in the cycle requiring modification in control parameters, during steam injection, have been identified.
