MOBILE POWER STATIONS BASED ON AIRCRAFT GAS-TURBINE ENGINES
National Aviation University, Kyiv
Gas-turbine power station is a modern, high-technology plant, which generates electricity and heat energy. It consists of one or more gas-turbine engines – power-plants ganged with electric generator and combined into one power complex by controlling system. Mobile power stations are used in districts, which are distant from source of electric power, e.g. during building of waterworks, mines, bore-holes drilling etc. Primary purpose of mobile power stations is their usage as emergency source of electrical power when electric system is damaged because of natural disasters or other reasons. Light-weight and compact mobile power stations, which are easily brought to the place of disaster, can lighten the consequences of disasters considerably.
