Abstract:

A method of finite differences for calculating the transient characteristics of a gas-turbine power plant is offered the method is claimed to be simpler and more reliable as compared to existing methods. The following formulas are developed rate-of-flow in the turbine same in the compressor compression in the compressor expansion in the turbine balance of total compression ratio and total expansion ratio rate-of-change of gas quantity in the capacity regeneration case heat exchange in the regenerator power balance in the compressor shaft compressor efficiency turbine efficiency. The above formulas, some additional turbine formulas, and ship- propulsion formulas are tabulated. Peculiarities in the calculation of a load- drop case are discussed.
