A new 13 MW class heavy duty gas turbine “MF-111” with the combustor outlet temperature of 1250°C (1523 K) was developed and tested.

The thermal efficiency of MF-111 is designed to be 32% for simple-cycle and 45% in combined-cycle operation.

MF-111 has single-shaft configuration, 15-stage axial flow compressor, 8 cannular type combustors and 3-stage axial flow turbine.

Advanced cooling technology was incorporated for the turbine and the combustor design to be capable of higher combustor outlet temperature.

The prototype was shoptested at full load in April, 1986. The performance and the metal temperatures of hot parts were confirmed to well satisfy the design goal. The first machine of MF-111 started the commercial operation from August, 1986 and has logged satisfactory operations.
