Micro-Turbine generator design and development
Samad Power team has over 20 years of collective experience in design and development of micro gas turbine for power generation and CHP. Samad Power enjoys the benefit of using a novel and proven design method that has allowed the company to deliver the project objectives in the shortest possible time and most cost effective way.
This design philosophy of Samad Power is based on the following principles:
1Customers focused: It is of prime importance to Samad Power to fully understand its clients’ needs to be able to define the objectives and deliverable of each project.
2Don’t recreate the wheel: Gas turbine has been around for the last 70 years and there are a lot of technologies in this industry that can be utilized or components that can be sourced off the shelf. Therefore, Samad Power does not try to design or develop a sub component that is already available.
3Don’t over engineer: In a design and R&D environment, it is very easy to over engineer a product and consume unnecessary resources from the company and possibly the client. In fact Samad Power clarifies the priorities of its clients and concentrates on them while delivering the whole system deliverables.
The generators designed and developed by Samad Power can be used in the following applications:
- Domestic micro Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system
- Small medium and large commercial units
- Blocks of flats for residential use or offices
- Hospitals, hotels, airports, shopping centres etc.
- Emergency power units
- Automotive range extenders for sizes of 20 kW to 80 kW
The team is focused on design of micro turbine generators from 2kW to 1.5MW in the following sizes:
- 2 kW
- 10 kW
- 20 kW
- 40 kW
- 60 kW
- 80 kW
- 100 kW
- 250 kW
- 1.0 MW
Micro gas turbine component development and testing
Through years of working on highly innovative energy, power and aerospace related projects, Samad Power technical team gained valuable experience of design, development and test of all of the main components of the micro turbine.
Following components are designed, developed and tested under Samad Power’s philosophy of innovation:
- Compressor (centrifugal/ axial)
- Turbine (Radial in-feed/ axial)
- Combustor (Can/ annular, DLE, multi fuel capability)
- Recuperator and intercooler (various design concepts and sizes)
Techno-economical / environmental assessment of gas turbine engine for power generation, aerospace, oil and gas industry
Gas turbine engine is utilised in different industries. It is imperative to select the correct gas turbine for the application in hand with all of the performance, life, environmental and total life cycle cost considered in a methodical assessment.
The objective of this assessment is to ensure the fulfilment of strategic objective of the gas turbine operator.
For instance, the development of gas pipeline system requires important data such as appropriate pipe sizes, gas rate, required delivery pressure, appropriate compressor and gas turbine sizes. The investment for the pipeline and compressor station is capital intensive and therefore the techno-economic and environmental risk assessment tool to rapidly assess the pipeline becomes critically important.
Samad Power’s team of professional and academic consultants would look at advanced pipelines and the close coupling of the compression system with advanced prime mover cycles. The investigation offers a comparative assessment of traditional and novel prime mover options including the design and off-design performance of gas turbine engine and the economic analysis of the system.
A techno-economic/ environmental assessment software is created that is made up of a number of modules, starting with the pipeline and compressor station modules which compute the necessary flow parameters and compressor performance, as well as the required compressor power. The next is the gas turbine performance simulation module that analyses the design and off-design conditions of the prime mover and it computes the thermodynamic conditions in the core of the engine. Receiving information from the performance simulation module, the emission module, which is based on combustion equations, estimates the amount of emission over the period of operation of the gas turbine. The economic module, which is essential to the tool, receives information from all the other modules to establish the life cycle cost and use the net present value (NPV) methodology to assess the plant. It also calculates all associated costs, as well as the cost of transporting natural gas.
