Aircraft-type gas turbines have been used by Consumers Power Co. to provide power for the injection of natural gas into underground storage for the past five years. Special controls, auxiliary and driven equipment are required for this unique application. Operating experience has prompted numerous refinements as well as providing information for maintenance and economic planning. The paper describes the basic design of the engine-compressor units for a remotely controlled, unmanned compressor station as well as highlights from the operating experience with this application.
