The field test of the current production W501D combustion turbine shows the engine to be an outstanding success. The engine meets power and exceeds efficiency expectations. Metal temperatures are at or below expected levels throughout the engine. In particular the test data demonstrates low temperatures provided by improved design concepts for the combustion chamber and first stage turbine vane, which are critical components because of their severe environment. Other design improvements for performance and reliability were also verified during the test.
