Abstract
As means towards determining the effect of various parameters on combustion turbine plant size and weight for a particular net power output, three have been chosen as independent variables in which the plant may be expressed. These three are the flow coefficient, (Cx/U) the blade length ratio, (L/d) the mass rate of flow, w. The size and weight of compressor, turbine and combustion compenents of a plant are stated in terms of these three, and the effect of blade aspect ratio on weight and volume is also mentioned. A specific example is used to illustrate the fact that the shaft speed ratio between compressor and turbine coefficient and blade length ratio to be chosen, whereas the effect of pressure ration on this choice is very slight.
