Abstract:

The report discusses recent developments in design and construction of gas turbines as primary industrial power source. It is pointed out that the Soviet Union is lagging behind other countries in this field although studies by a number of organizations as well as analysis of foreign experience has shown practical possibilities of considerable savings by introduction of gas turbine units in Soviet power plants. The following are listed as the most rational directions which should be taken for utilization of gas turbines in power engineering in the Soviet Union in the immediate future 1970-1975 1 auxiliary equipment for peak electrical loads in power systems 2 operation as continous-duty low and medium power units in isolated power systems or remote regions including mobile or floating power stations 3 carrying base loads in various types of combination steam-gas systems 4 use as stand-by emergency units and auxiliary power stations. Prompt attention should be given to construction and perfection of gas turbine power units with a base power of 25-100 thousand kw based on simple thermal systems with high reliability, excellent operational properties and relatively low cost in production and utilization. These installations should be made with regard to optimum use in combination steam-gas systems. Author
