This paper describes the performance and mechanical design of a 4500-hp, two shaft heavy duty simple or regenerative cycle gas turbine. This machine resulted from an international cooperative effort of the joint authors’ respective companies. Initially planned for gas pipelines and process applications, a line of load compressors has been integrated into the single package design. Options include indoor or outdoor models and geared or direct mechanical output for applications not served by the integral compressor models. A variable area load turbine nozzle assures maximum efficiency over a wide range of load, speed, and amibient conditions.
