Source: Siemens changes, combustor designs have tended to stabilize and all the main
companies now have proven designs which they utilize across their
turbine ranges.
This leaves the turbine as the component where the greatest gains in
efficiency are likely to be made, though gains here are becoming hard
to win. Modern computer design has led to the optimization of blade
profiles to gain maximum efficiency so there is little that can be done
there. Thus designers are forced to exploit the one area left to them,
turbine gas inlet temperature. Since thermodynamic efficiency depends
on the overall temperature drop across the turbine, raising the inlet
temperature should equate to an increase in efficiency.
The combustion gas temperature for GE’s H-class gas turbine, one
of the 60 per cent contenders, puts it in the 1500 °C class, roughly
100 °C higher than the company’s F-class machines, which constitute
the main large frame GE turbines in use today. Inlet temperature of the
