Jet engines have a number of very attractive properties also when used as stationary prime movers: high power in relation to weight and volume, convenient start, thermoflexibility, easy gas generator change-out, etc. On the other hand, industrial type gas turbines generally have lower maintenance costs, accept a wider range of fuels, do not require special overhaul shop facilities, etc. This paper gives some technological aspects of a 15,000-hp gas generator which is a hybrid of the two design concepts including some virtues of both.
