This paper deals with the design and application of a 29,000 bhp (21,625 KW) gas turbine-compressor unit to perform the duties of high pressure ratio/low volume (storage) and low pressure ratio/high volume (transmission). To achieve this wide range of requirements, a single gas turbine was matched with two tandem driven centrifugal compressors. The paper describes the considerations and the techniques used to select the gas turbine, compressor aerodynamic performance and match the gas turbine and compressors.
