Model of an ANSALDO V94.2 gas turbine from Lublin Wrotków Combined Heat and Power Plant using GateCycle™ software.

Bartosz Kowalczyk, Cezary Kowalczyk, Radosław Mateusz Rolf, Krzysztof Badyda


The following article concerns the model of the ANSALDO V94.2 gas turbine for variable operating conditions from CHP Lublin Wrotków. To build the model General Electric GateCycle™ software was used. The methods of gas turbines modeling in the software were described. To represent correctness of the model, there were performed computations for 40% and 70% load for 0.9, 14 and 30°C ambient temperature and 100% load for -20, 0.9, 14, 15 and 30°C ambient temperature and the results were compared with available heat balances. The article also discusses the theory of gas turbines, considering the sensitivity of the thermodynamic cycle.
