The specific problem in this investigation is to determine if a no-break electric power system using a gas turbine as the emergency prime mover can be manufactured and operated within certain specified limits to provide continuous electric power to the critical portions of Naval Communications equipment. The present method of providing no-break electric power is to use a diesel engine as the emergency prime mover. These systems are considered to be too bulky, heavy, and expensive. The gas turbine system must be so designed as to overcome these disadvantages. One system is proposed that can be manufactured from equipment now available; however, this system while being less bulky and weighing less than the diesel system, costs more to own and operate. Another system is proposed that will satisfy the design requirements; however, it cannot be manufactured without certain basic changes in gas turbines that are now commercially available.
