This paper outlines the major design considerations and development experience of a 12,500-hp dual-shaft gas turbine. The unit uses an aircraft derivative gas turbine as the gas generator and is designed to operate in an attended or unattended station without external electrical power above 60 per cent of design speed. Proven power turbine design concepts were combined with the advantages of a variety of highly developed gas generators to produce a reliable machine which could be introduced with a minimum of development time. A special test facility was constructed to subject the unit to a full load test under conditions which simulated field operation.
