This paper is a follow-up to ASME Paper 70-GT-9, “Development of a 3000-HP Industrial Gas Turbine Engine,” and covers further development accomplished during the past two years to adapt the engine to generator drive applications. Specific areas which are covered in detail include: (a) mechanical features of the single-shaft rotor and output drive system as distinct from the two-shaft design; (b) combustor and fuel injections system development for liquid (diesel) fuel and dual fuel capability; (c) fuel control system development; and (d) hydroelectric starting system.
