Gas Turbines: Fundamentals, Maintenance, Inspection & Troubleshooting
Course Description
Gas turbine engines are generally classified based on the type and nature of application, size and location. This chapter contains a general overview of the different types of gas turbines in use, and also a brief introduction to the various components comprising the gas turbine engine in addition to discussing the concept of heat recovery in combined cycle gas turbine plants. Gas turbines in general are broadly classified into five categories.
