Combined Cycle Gas Turbine plant with a single shaft arrangement, also known as CCGT, is an efficient and widely used process that uses a gas and steam turbine to drive a double ended generator in order to generate electricity.
The process recovers the exhaust heat energy created by the gas turbine, via a heat steam recovery generator (HRSG), and converts it into useful steam. The steam can then be used to power the steam turbine, which in turn will increase electricity production and overall plant efficiency.
The current energy markets demands plant operators to be efficient, flexible and reliable. Installing an SSS Clutch between the steam turbine and generator will enable the operator to meet all of the above stringent requirements.
