Web Abstract

Gas turbines are amongst the most advanced power generation systems as they combine extreme conditions in terms of the rotational speed at an elevated gas temperature. Miniaturisation of such a system is not straight-forward as it poses tremendous technical problems, e.g., high rotational speeds and temperature, unfavorable influences on the flow and combustion process, etc. The design will have a single-stage centrifugal compressor mounted back-to-back with a single-stage radial turbine on a common shaft generating 100 kWe. A recuperator will be incorporated to improve the electrical efficiency, whereas an exhaust heat recovery steam generator will be designed to improve thermal efficiency for CHP applications. An electrical efficiency of 25–35% and thermal efficiency of 70-75% for CHP applications are proposed for the MGT systems. Individual component will be tested for performance analysis. A test bed with instrumentation and control systems will be developed for performance analysis of the MGT units.
