The V64.3 60-MW combustion turbine is the first of a new generation of high-temperature gas turbines, designed for 50 and 60 Hz simple cycle, combined cycle, and cogeneration applications. The prototype engine was tested in 1990 in the Berlin factories under the full range of operation conditions. It was equipped with various measurement systems to monitor pressures, gas and metal temperatures, clearances, strains, vibrations, and exhaust emissions. The paper describes the engine design, the test facility and instrumentation, and the engine performance. Results are given for turbine blade temperatures, compressor and turbine vibrations, exhaust gas temperature, and NOx emissions for combustion of natural gas and fuel oil.
