Description

The task of this project is the development of cooled turbine stages for high pressure ratios for industrial gas turbines. Through innovative design, manufacturing and testing techniques, the transonic flow of this kind of stages should be improved. The institute performs detailed flow efficiency measurements in the transonic test turbine rig. This turbine is continuously operated and allows the testing of cooled and uncooled first and second stages of industrial gas turbines in full flow similarity.
Also an innovative cooling system developed by the institute, is investigated in the transonic wind tunnel and in the turbine. This system promises some advantages for transonic turbines for advanced industrial gas turbines.
