Pagination or Media Count:
The report covers the redesign, manufacture, and testing of a clutch to connect a 185 horsepower gas turbine to a 100 KW alternator after the turbine is accelerated to self-sustaining speed. The clutch bearing design was analyzed and pro to type clutch was produced to fit a test facility provided under earlier design efforts. Tests were performed to further prove the clutch concept qualitatively. Conclusions are that such a clutch is feasable although maximum speed has not yet been attained.
