The paper deals with the development of TG 50 gas turbine and its evolution in the years from the original to the present configuration with mention of substantial improvements in both compressor and turbine sections that initiated the growth of power output from the original 75 MW to the 110 MW present rating.

Successful solution of some basic operating problems encountered mainly in the compressor section, required quite an extensive research and development work.

In addition, comprehensive test programs have been carried out for the development of the present configuration and for the confirmation of the validity of the selected solutions.
