A full range mathematical model of the LM-1600 gas turbine has been developed, for future use in EHM studies. No data was available from the manufacturer other than sales brochures giving some design and off-design performance. The model was developed using generalized component characteristics and shows excellent agreement with field data from a pipeline operator.

A new method has been developed for doing the matching calculations, starting from the turbine (hot) end rather than from the compressor operating point. This method permits solution on a PC, and can be used for studying the full range of operating conditions and the development of fault matrices.
