The Station chosen for the trial was Bulls Bridge Gas Turbine Station, sited near London Airport. (See Fig 1-1). Bulls Bridge contains 4, 70 MW sets; each 70 MW unit being powered by 4 Industrial Olympus gas generators, two at either end of a central alternator, (See Fig 1-2). At each end of the alternator, power is supplied via a clutch, to a shaft on which is mounted two power turbines, each driven by a single Olympus gas generator. Thus gas paths are separate between intake and final exhaust, and therefore each gas generator/power turbine assembly can be analysed without being unduly affected by associated plant.
