Title: SUPERCHARGING SYSTEM FOR GAS TURBINES
Abstract:
A supercharging system for gas turbine power plants (11). The system includes a supercharging fan (30, 32) and a controller (50) for limiting turbine power output to prevent overload of the generator (28) at lower ambient temperatures. The controller can limit power output by burner control, inlet temperature control, control of supercharging fan pressure and other options. The system can be retrofit on an existing turbine without replacing the generator and associated parts.
