This gas turbine concept incorporates decades of experience with heavy-duty gas turbines at Siemens. It is the solid technical foundation, on which proven technology is based. Application of the accumulated know-how is being implemented for reliable, efficient and flexible operation.

In January 2008, more than 380 SGT5-2000E (former V94.2) and SGT6-2000E (former V84.2) Siemens gas turbines were in operation, had been shipped, or were ordered worldwide. The 168 MW, 50 Hz model, the SGT5-2000E, is a heavyduty gas turbine designed for reliable, efficient and flexible operation. Over 6.4 million operating hours of experience with 300 SGT5-2000E (former V94.2) gas turbines have been accumulated, demonstrating their outstanding reliability under diverse operating conditions.

Today, the SGT5-2000E is proof that it is possible to reconcile ambitious economic and environmental targets through: Effective use of resources Low NOx content of exhaust gas Low CO2 emissions

Compressor blades Variable pitch inlet guide vanes allow operation down to half load while maintaining a constant exhaust temperature. All stationary and moving blades of the compressor and turbine can be replaced individually without removing the rotor from the lower casing.

Turbine blades Convective air-cooling of the first three stationary and first two moving turbine blade rows protects the blade material against high inlet temperatures. The first three stages of the turbine are protected with a special coating. No film cooling is used to allow ash-forming fuel firing. The free-standing moving blades of the compressor and turbine are tuned to permit continuous fullload operation over a wide off-frequency range.

Proven design features

Optimized flow, robust and versatile combustion and cooling systems add up to a gas turbine efficiency of nearly 35%. To highlight a few features: The machine is of oneshaft, single-casing design and features two laterally flanged, large-volume, silotype combustion chambers, a multi-stage compressor, and a four-stage turbine. An air-cold generator is driven on the cold (compressor) end. The SGT5-2000E has 16 compressor stages; the SGT6-2000E has 17 stages. A modified version with 17 compressor stages is available for non or partially air-integrated syngas/IGCC applications. The SGT5-2000E model has eight burners per combustion chamber; the SGT6-2000E has 6 burners. A standard static exitation and variable frequency converter system ensures smooth acceleration of the gas turbine to full speed within four minutes. Ready access via manholes into the two combustion chambers permits direct inspection of the hot-gaspath components from the burners to turbine blades.

Rotor The light, highly rigid rotor of disk design allows rapid start-ups. Internal air-circulation paths in the rotor minimize thermal stresses. Hirth facial serrations at the outer perimeter of the disks ensure self-centering of all the rotor components under steady and nonsteady-state operating conditions.

Operation flexibility and service friendliness

The concept of large combustion chambers provides low emissions, fuel flexibility and ease in maintenance. They can be fired with a wide variety of fuels, from low- to high-calorific gaseous and/or liquid fuels, including treated heavy oils. All casings, except for the hot-gas inlet section, have a horizontal joint for ease of maintenance. Off-board combustion eliminates any direct flame-radiation on the turbine blading, and the long dilution path provides for uniform temperature distribution at the inlet to the blading. The basic robust design guarantees best in E-class flexibility: A wide range of fuel qualities Low emissions even at lower part loads Fast start-up Flexible grid support In general low maintenance scope, extended maintenance intervals according to customer needs Excellent accessability eases manual turbine washing and inspection when firing ash forming fuel oil

The SGT5-PAC 2000E and SGT6-PAC 2000E

The Siemens Gas Turbine Package (SGT-PAC) comprises the gas turbine and generator, and all major mechanical, control and electrical equipment required for safe and reliable operation of these components. We deliver our Siemens Gas Turbine Packages largely preassembled, including piping and wiring to a major extend. The auxiliary systems are combined in groups and installed as prefabricated packages. This reduces installation and commissioning expenditures and durations. Pre-engineered options are available to meet project- and site-specific requirements or to increase operating flexibility and performance of the power generating system.
