Gas Turbine Performance Test
What is the procedure/process for carrying out a gas turbine performance test?

We are trying to determine the Maximum Continuous Rating and Net Dependable Capacity of our GE Frame 5 turbines. Please, can someone share a standard procedure for carrying out a gas turbine performance test?

What are the major activities of a Performance Department in a Gas Turbine Power Plant?

GE has published gas turbine performance test procedures for decades. Most every Operations & Maintenance Manual included one in the manual, along with Correction Curves to be used to account for differences in ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.

You can also probably find the publications on the World Wide Web using your search engine of choice.
