    Gas Turbines - Basics & Applications

    MAN ExpertTalk
    , 08:00 09:30
    (W. Europe Standard Time)

    This MAN ExpertTalk is the basis for our gas turbine series, with the topics addressed here being fleshed out in the subsequent presentations. We start with an overview over the basics of gas turbines, including the thermodynamic cycle as well as different designs used for power generation applications (e.g. heavy duty and aero-derivative) and we discuss their respective merits. We also present a number of typical applications and we draw a comparison between the characteristics of small gas turbines and other solutions, for example gas engines.

    Industrial CHP Applications - Engines & Gas Turbines

    MAN ExpertTalk
    , 08:00 09:00
    (W. Europe Standard Time)

    In this MAN ExpertTalk we discuss various combined heat and power (CHP) cycles, e.g. steam, hot water or tri-generation, their benefits and typical applications. The focus is on key factors for operators including overall efficiency and pay-back times. In this context we provide a comparison between the application of gas turbines and gas engines and we give guidelines with regard to the benefits of using either one or both types of equipment for certain applications.

    Gas Turbine Fuel Flexibility – Past, Present & Future

    MAN ExpertTalk
    , 08:00 09:15
    (W. Europe Standard Time)

    In this MAN ExpertTalk we will present our MAN’s approach to fuel flexibility. This entails an overview over the different types of gaseous fuels, but also dual fuel technologies and capabilities. Hydrogen will have an important place in the presentation, with an emphasis on short- and mid-term solutions and an outlook on long-term technologies.

    MAN ExpertTalk
    , 08:00 09:15
    (W. Europe Standard Time)

    This MAN ExpertTalk will focus on an often neglected aspect of gas turbines: the package. The presentation will include a general overview over the most important features and tasks of a gas turbine package, with emphasis on environmental and safety aspects. The former include issues such as air, water and fuel management, and emissions. The latter includes, for example, fire safety.

    The previous MAN ExpertTalk on CHP will be taken up and the details of the cycles presented before will be discussed more profoundly. This will include an overview over the economics of the different cycles depending on such factors as type of industry of application, operation time, spread between gas and electricity costs etc.

    Cost of Ownership

    MAN ExpertTalk
    , 08:00 09:30
    (W. Europe Standard Time)

    The cost of purchasing a gas turbine is only a small portion of the life-cycle costs of the equipment. In particular, the costs of operation could exceed the initial purchase price by far depending on the type of equipment used and its mode of operation. Therefore, we will look into the total costs of ownership and highlight various aspects to be considered for an optimization from the point-of-view of a customer. The optimized total cost of ownership depends ultimately very much on the specific project conditions.

    (W. Europe Standard Time)

    The last MAN ExpertTalk in this series will revisit thermodynamics and give a deeper insight in the gas turbine cycle. It will also highlight various environmental and operational influences on the efficiency of the gas turbine and the life time of its components. A discussion of the definition of ISO-conditions and the implications for the engine performance on-site will be included.
