Dedicated enclosures have been fitted around all propulsion GT in current RN service to provide an acoustic barrier. When the design incorporates a Free PT. shock loads. corrosion and thermal mass of the design proposal are required to de-risk the design of this critical component.3. Significant resource should be allocated to the development. This provides a high temperature differential between compressor delivery air and exhaust gas in the recuperator. This results in increased power density of the overall machine. Ten years should be assumed unless otherwise stated in the SRD. The possibility of condensation on the air side of the IC should be considered. No planned maintenance of the PT outside of refit periods involving a downtime of greater than 24 hours should be accepted. 5. Recuperators a. containment of an on engine fire and an 40 .3. When used in conjunction with a recuperator an improved joule cycle thermal efficiency is achieved.

1 Removal Routes a. Fully modular GT allows the possibility of modular (MACU) exchange in-situ in the platform. the introduction of analogue control systems has demonstrated increased reliability. The increased flexibility of Full Authority Digital Engine Controllers (FADEC) will continue this trend and allow full data integration with modern Platform/Power Management Systems (P/PMS).5. This can permit greater progress in the preparation of the GT for removal prior to the vessel berthing alongside and reduces the risk of incurring FOD on re-commissioning the engine and intake system.3 Removal of GT in RN warships is usually through the GT intake or via a dedicated removal route from the machinery space.4 Support Issues 5. With the introduction of GTA. easier and faster set to work procedures as well as easier fault diagnosis. 5. at a dockside facility or at a contractor’s support facility. IEP concepts allow increased flexibility in the siting of GTA.DEF STAN 02–309/ ISSUE 2 (NES 309) airtight NBCD boundary. Advances in the construction methods of some GT produced a design where the GT could be stripped down into a number of assemblies or Maintenance Assembly Change Units (MACU) at the support facility.1 On Engine Fuel Control Systems a. Guidance on Painting and Preservation can be found in Annex H. b. Painting a.5 Control Systems 5. serious consideration should be given to the requirement for GT enclosures on a case by case basis. The holding of a number of the lowest release life MACU permits the number of complete GT held in storage to be decreased.2 5. The added flexibility of such GT can be utilised to minimise support costs and spare holdings requirements for each application. Current GT enclosures are usually fitted with self contained fire detection and fire extinguishing systems. thus further reducing support costs. Whilst proven and still in-service on some GT. rotationally balanced and ‘pass-off’ tested prior to installation in a platform. Where a GTA is installed in a small dedicated machinery space it may be that the requirements for an enclosure are reduced and possibly the enclosure can be dispensed with as the machinery space effectively becomes the enclosure. b. Breaking down a GT into MACU has the potential to reduce the repair and overhaul time and associated costs. The benefit of this system is to remove the requirement to strip out the internals of the GT downtake trunking and install removal rails. Earlier GT in RN Service used the fuel as the control medium in a purely hydro-mechanical control system.4. Modularity a.4. Early GT were built as complete units. such as the WR21.4. Sideways removal of the GT from its enclosure was introduced with the Spey GT (Type 22 Batch III and Type 23 Frigates). 5. The concept of fully modular GT has been achieved with the development of new GT. b. 41 . 5.

In modern ship systems. 42 . a digital engine controller capable of readily interfacing with the P/PMS is considered to be advantageous. surveillance capabilities and where appropriate. Typically GT control systems should be digital microprocessor based providing full authority control and safety logic.
