This paper describes the design of a turbine-compressor set in the 400–500 kw power range for use in the ML-1 mobile nuclear power plant. The specification and design problems are discussed in terms of mechanical design and aerodynamic performance. The open-cycle test facility is also described and the results of open-cycle testing are surveyed.
