511-05 - Heavy Duty Gas Turbines – Major Components and Support Systems
Gas or combustion turbines convert thermal energy to mechanical energy by fuel combustion. It takes in air, compresses it, adds fuel for combustion, then exhausts the gases. Heavy Duty Gas Turbine Major Component and Support Systems online training provides an overview of these turbines. It discusses the motivation behind the heavy gas turbine development and describes its base components and general operation.
Heavy Duty Gas Turbines includes the turbine history, basic heavy duty design, flow path, components, exhaust, and lube oil. This course is part of the Combustion Turbine Fundamentals series.
