Abstract [en]

Overall theoretical performance analysis of gas turbines can be conducted by applying design parameters into several thermodynamic theories and equations. However, limited availability of the design parameters will not provide sufficient room for a detailed analysis. Ga s turbine manufacturers publish only a limited amount of design/performance data, while important parameters remained hidden and the available information is not sufficiently enough for obtaining a complete gas turbine performance dataset. Five main parameters commonly provided by a gas turbine manufacturer's catalogues; pressure ratio of the compressor, exhaust mass flow rate, exhaust temperature of flue gas, overall efficiency, and electrical output. A theoretical model developed based on Mathcad software as documented in literature is used to reveal other hidden gas turbine parameters. A similar theoretical model using another solver was developed to obtain a complete dataset by using the available catalogue data with additional assumptions, which correspond to the commercial state of the art. The engineering equation solver (EES) software has been used as a platform to rebuild the theoretical model. As the main development, a graphical user interphase (GUI) has been introduced to the new program with the aim to make it more user friendly. Furthermore on top of obtaining the hidden thermodynamic parameters for the gas turbine, performing flue gas analysis and an exergy analysis has now become possible through this program. The developed EES program is expected to be run in the learning laboratory at the Division of Heat and Power Technology, Department of Energy Technology, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm and finally it is going to be incorporated into CompEdu Learning Platform of the same division.
