This paper provides simplified mathematical representations of heavy-duty gas turbines that are suitable for use in dynamic power system studies and in dynamic analyses of connected equipment. The full range of heavy-duty, single-shaft gas turbines, from 18 MW (24,000 HP) and 106 MW (142,000 HP), is covered, as well as both liquid and gas fuel systems, parallel and isolated operation, droop and isochronous governors, and the impact of both air- and hydrogen-cooled generators on the characteristics of the model. Alterations to the models, for the purpose of further simplification, are also discussed.
