Today many utilities are confronted with the problem of increasing their generating capacity to shave system peaks. By the nature of being a complete power cycle, the gas turbine appears as an attractive prime mover in this type application. This paper describes a 22-mw decentralized gas-turbine generating station designed specifically for peaking service. The philosophy of the design of the equipment and its arrangement in the plant is included along with a description of its control and operation.
