Gas Turbine Performance

Gas Turbine Performance ( 11-15 Sep 2017)


The gas turbine engine is a very complex device. Its high power to weight ratio has made it the propulsion system of choice in aircraft applications.
It is also used extensively in the oil, gas, power and process industries. An understanding of the basic principles underpinning its design, operation and behaviour is essential for all engineers involved in the development, production, procurement and use of gas turbines.

What you will learn

The course provides delegates with an understanding of how different types of gas turbine produce useful power and how their output is influenced by a very wide range of operating conditions. The three major categories of gas turbine applications are covered, civil aviation, military aviation and mechanical power applications.
When completing the course the delegate should be able to understand the influence of mission on the choice of gas turbine cycle and how gas turbines behave in a very wide range of operating conditions.

Core content

The content is split into three main sections:

  • Gas Turbine Aerothermodynamics.
  • Design Point Performance Assessment.
  • Off-Design Performance.

Who should attend?

The course is intended for graduates of engineering, science or mathematics who are involved in the gas turbine or associated industries. Previous industrial experience is desirable.

Course Delivery

The course will be delivered in three independent streams. Delegates will have to choose one of the following options:

o   Gas Turbine Performance

o   Gas Turbine Transient Performance

o   Gas Turbine Performance Simulation using NPSS
