Gas Turbine Performance And Condition Evaluation


This is a technical training course intended for those desiring an in-depth knowledge of gas turbine performance evaluation, to determine the condition of their equipment. The course builds on a foundation of basic engine theory, thermodynamics, and aerodynamics and expands that knowledge to practical, useful performance and condition evaluation applications. It provides the knowledge required to interpret the performance curves to predict what the turbomachinery performance should be, measure and calculate what the performance actually is, and compare actual to predicted to evaluate turbomachinery condition. An enhanced knowledge of the turbomachinery performance can help to maximize production and revenue, and minimize fuel consumption and costs. In addition to learning how to do the calculations, students will have the use of software tools during the course to do those calculations and track the relative performance of turbo-machinery over time. Hands-on example problems and case-studies will allow the students to practice using the software tools.


  1. Students should have an engineering degree or at least five years of experience and operational knowledge of Solar gas turbine engines and packages. Prior knowledge of how gas turbine engines operate is required.
  2. Successful completion of Operation and Routine Maintenance course, or equivalent experience, would be an advantage.
