Essential features of peak-load and stand-by gas-turbine plants are rapid starting, small personnel requirements and reliable fast-acting control systems. In designing a gas turbine of 40–50 Mw output, consideration has been given to fulfilling these requirements, thus many special features have been adopted including an air starting device and an electrohydraulic control system for fully automatic starting and operation. Studies have also been made of the effects of rapid load changes on the temperature gradients in the high temperature parts.
