Abstract [en]

Gas turbines have become effective in industrial applications for electric and thermal energy production partly due to their quick response to load variations. A gas turbine power plant is a complex assembly of a varietyof components that are designed on the basis of aero thermodynamiclaws.

This thesis work presents model development of a single-shaft gas turbine plant cycle that can operate at wide range of load settings in complete dynamic GTP simulator. The modeling and simulation has been done in Dymola 7.3, based on the Modelica programming language. The gas turbine plant model is developed on component-oriented basis. This means that the model is built up by smaller model classes. With this modeling approach, the models become flexible and user-friendly for different plant operational modes.

The component models of the main steady-state compressor and turbine stages have been integrated with gas plenum models for capturing the performance dynamics of the gas turbine power plant. The method of assembly used for gas turbine plant integration is based on models of the components from an engineering process scheme.

In order to obtain an accurate description of the gas-turbine working principle, each component is described by a non-linear set of both algebraic and first-order differential equations. The thesis project provides descriptions of the mathematical equations used for component modeling and simulation. A complete dynamic simulation of a gas-turbine plant has been performed by connecting the complete plant model with PI controllers for both design and off-design operating modes.

Furthermore, turbine blade cooling has been studied to evaluate the changes in power output. This has been done to compare and analyze the blade cooling effect.
