Type: Increasing use of heavy-duty gas turbines for power generation

Industrial gas turbines are large-scale turbine systems used to power industrial facilities such as factories and power plants. They produce high torque output, allowing them to drive large pumps or compressors for various industrial processes. Aeroderivative is lighter and more compact than industrial gas turbines, and due to their ability to shut down and handle load changes quicker than industrial machines, they are widely employed in electrical power generation. Heavy-duty gas turbines are designed for stationary applications at power plants, where they serve as the primary source of electricity generation. Heavy-duty units feature robust construction that enables them to operate under harsh environmental conditions with minimal maintenance requirements. They are primarily large-sized with a rated capacity of more than 75 MW, capable of burning various fuels, ranging from natural gas to heavy liquid residuals.

Technology: Growing use of open-cycle gas turbine for marine applications

An open-cycle gas turbine is a type of gas turbine in which the hot gases produced by the combustion of liquid fuel are utilized to rotate the turbine, and the remaining heat is drained into the atmosphere. This type of technology is useful for applications that require higher output quickly. A closed-cycle gas turbine is a gas turbine in which the air is continuously circulated within the turbine. The closed-cycle gas turbine has more thermal efficiency when compared to open-cycle systems. A combined-cycle power plant generates up to 50% more energy from the same fuel as it combines gas and a steam turbine. The extra heat produced by the gas turbine is shifted to the nearby steam turbine to generate additional power.

Rating Capacity: Continuous increase in use of 120-300 MW capacity gas turbines with investments in renewable energy

Gas turbines with a rated capacity of less than 40 MW are commonly used in small-scale industrial processes for operating machines and equipment. Gas turbines with a 40-120 MW rated capacity are most often used for combined heat and power (CHP) plants, district heating systems, and medium-scale manufacturing facilities. Gas turbines with a rated capacity of 120-300 MW are often utilized for larger-scale electricity generation and renewable energy production applications. In comparison, those gas turbines with ratings over 300 MW are primarily used for utility-scale electricity production or in large-scale oil & gas industries.

Application: Proliferation in use of gas turbines in the aviation sector

Gas turbines are a popular form of energy production for oil & gas applications, as they can generate high amounts of power with relatively small-scale equipment. They are often used in drilling rigs to provide the necessary electricity required to pressurize and control the flow of oil or gas during the extraction process. Gas turbines have long been used in power generation due to their low cost and reliable performance. This system can be used in many manufacturing processes to control torque and speed output during operation precisely. It makes them ideal for textiles or paper manufacturing industries where exacting speeds and torque requirements must be consistently met. Gas turbine engines propel an aircraft and are often available as turbojet, turbofan, turboshaft, and turboprop.
