Solar’s Mares 100LS industrial gas turbine rated at 11.2 MW (15,000 hp) and 34% thermal efficiency at ISO conditions is the latest model Mars gas turbine evolved from an ongoing program of planned continuous product improvement. Since the Mars gas turbine was introduced in 1978, over 250 units have been ordered and approximately 4 million hours of field experience have been logged with packages designed for gas compression, pump drive, and electrical power generation. This paper updates the description of the Mars gas turbine to include the three latest enhancements: redesign of the first two compressor stages for increased output power and efficiency; SoLoNOx (dry low NOx, antipollution) combustion system: and a new low speed power turbine to improve output drive versatility.
