This important book provides operators of industrial gas turbines with a review of the principles of gas turbine operation and how they can be used to predict and improve turbine performance. The book is accompanied by a CD which allows the user to simulate aspects of performance such as emissions, changes in pressure, and power augmentation. The author covers the thermodynamics of gas turbine cycles as well as simulation of gas turbine performance, emissions, and turbine life assessment for single- and double-shaft gas turbines. Three useful appendices supply convenient tables for stagnation temperatures and pressures along with a simulator user’s guide and various simulation exercises.
