Analyses of the GTE-160 compressor suction inlet fastener design influence on the stream structure and on the compressor washing system


The comparative analysis of the path structure in the compressor intake inlet of the gas turbine unit GTE-160 LMZ on two difference designs of air duct with intake inlet connection is given. Trajectories of the liquid drops, injected by atomizers for the compressor's flow path on-line washing from fouling are investigated. Data for the analysis are received with CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), Fluent program usage.
