Performance Correction Curve for steam turbine.

Performance Correction Curve for steam turbine.

Performance Correction Curve for steam turbine.


I work in combined cycle plant which it has 3 gas turbine and 1 steam turbine. The plant works with all turbines together in a 3x1 configuration, but it can also work in 2x1 and 1x1 arrangements.

Currently, I have 7 performance curves for a steam turbine in a 3x1 configuration at a certain steam conditions (reference conditions: pressure, temperature, flow and backpressure).

Could I modify these curves for other reference conditions in order to I can use them in other configurations like 2X1 and 1x1?

Thank you for all your support.

RE: Performance Correction Curve for steam turbine.

What ranges (of pressure, temperature, flow and back pressure) do the steam turbine performance curves cover? If these curves cover sufficient ranges and if the curves only predict steam turbine performance (rather than cycle performance), then the existing curves may be all that you need.

Best of luck!
