GEs D Series combined cycle (CC) steam turbine provides our customers a high power density, world-class thermal efficiency product.
Available in both 50 or 60 Hz single shaft and multi-shaft configurations, the D Series CC steam turbine is designed for a wide range of inlet
steam conditions and HRSG firing capabilities. With a fleet of over 5000 units installed worldwide, GEs experience as a steam turbine designer
and manufacturer continually evolves.
I. A Brief History
GEs continuing development of reheat steam turbines for combined cycle applications spans two decades of design enhancements
and continued improvements in efficiency and operability of bottoming cycle applications.
Through the early 1990s GE had already amassed extensive experience in reheat and non-reheat steam turbinesdesigning reheat steam
turbines for fixed pressure fossil applications with pressures of up to
3500 psig and temperatures up to 1000F, and non-reheat steam
turbines for industrial applications of sliding and fixed pressures
up to 1400 psig and temperatures of up to 900F. Drawing on that
combined experience, GE introduced the first GE Double Flow Reheat
CC steam turbine with steam conditions of 1400 psig/1000F/1000F.
In 1992 the fleet leader was deployed in a 207F combined cycle
power plant in Florida.
The following year the code 207D-11 was adopted, reflecting the
design characteristics of a single shell, opposed-flow combined high
and intermediate pressure (HP/IP), double-flow low pressure (LP)
steam turbine.

Introducing Structured Design
With worldwide demand increasing in the late 1990s, GE introduced the structured 207D-11 offering to support the power generation
needs of our customers. Building on our F class gas turbine and steam turbine products, the structured design provides enhanced solutions
for combined cycle power generation, significantly decreasing delivery time.
The structured 207D-11 concept evaluated the design space for a GE 207FA combined cycle power plant, creating customized pre-engineered
combined cycle steam turbine solutions. From 2000 to 2002, GE shipped over 100 207D-11 steam turbines. The 109D-10 design was also
developed in the mid 1990s to support 9F applications in single shaft (SS) configurations.
109D-12 Single and Multi-shaft Configurations
With further increases in demand for combined cycle power generation, to increase output capabilities customers required greater
application and operational flexibility in both an axial single flow and double flow design. So in 2006, GE introduced the 109D-12 product,
providing single shaft combined cycle steam turbine capabilities beyond that of the earlier A Series HEAT*product line.
The 109D-12 configuration can also be applied in multi-shaft (MS) configurations for larger applications. The first unit shipped to Europe
in 2009. There are a total of six units in the 109D-12 fleet today.
207D-11 Product Enhancements the 207D-11A
As the 207D-11 fleet matured, GEs continued New Technology Investment (NTI), operating experience of the 207D-11 fleet, and the collective
voice of GEs customers led to improvements and technological advancements, introduced in 2009 as GEs 207D-11A product.
The 207D-11A maintains GEs heritage impulse technology and delivers increased
power density through the incorporation of Dense Pack* steam path technology,
originally developed in our fossil steam turbine products, and a redesigned LP
section. These enhancements yield improved efficiency while affording customers
lower overall plants costs due to GEs high power density reduced span design.
The 207D-11A also delivers improved performance and maintainability by virtue
of new technology features, developed as part of GEs continued investment in
steam turbine technology, and improved LP hood aerodynamics.
As with all product evolution, design enhancements were made to directly
address challenges documented in Technical Information Letters (TILs) related to the 207D-11 product, such as the addition of jacking
provisions on the N2 packing head for improved maintainability, improved horizontal joint sealing, and enhanced diaphragm technology.
207D-11D Fossil Experience Enables 2400 psig
As customers continued to request improved combined cycle efficiency, GE applied its D Series fossil experience, along with its HEAT combined
cycle experience to bring 2400 psig inlet steam capabilities to the D Series steam
turbine products for combined cycle.
In 2010 GEs 207D-11D steam turbine was introduced. This design incorporates
a double HP/IP shell construction used in GEs fossil technology and A Series
HEAT combined cycle technology. The 207D-11D is a great complement to the
D Series where customers require large output and duct firing to fit their project
requirements. For the highly duct fired projects, the increased inlet pressure enables
a more efficient unfired condition while pressure slides up when the steam flow is
increased, reaching maximum pressure capability at the maximum fired point.

109D-14 HEAT Technology in Double Flow Configurations for 50 Hz
Building on A Series HEAT technology, and fleet experience of 27 units with over 250,000 operation hours, GE introduced the 109D-14
steam turbine for 50 Hz applications. This design supports an integrated 50 Hz SS plant design with high power density, increased efficiency
and operational flexibility. The 109D-14 incorporates advances in drum rotor technology, and separate HP and IP sections (three separate
casings design), and supports inlet steam capabilities of 2400 psig/1080F/1080F.
This integrated plant design with GEs 50 Hz F-class gas turbine includes a Synchro Self Shifting (SSS) clutch between the generator and
GEs combined cycle steam turbine, enabling faster and more flexible starting and loading. In addition, the 109D-14 design incorporates
a single side exhaust with a common LP outer capable of supporting either cooling tower and air cooled condenser configurations,
helping to reduce overall plant costs.
Expanding HEAT Technology to 60 Hz Double Flow Combined Cycle Designs
Based on the 50 Hz 109D-14 design, GE developed the 207D-17 60 Hz-capable design, providing HEAT technology in a double flow
LP configuration. Similar to the 109D-14, the 207D-17 uses HEAT technology and three casing design architecture. The 207D-17 is also
designed for improved efficiency and operational flexibility in a down exhaust configuration for multi-shaft 2 x 1 configurations. To
accommodate various duct firing needs for any project, the LP section is sized according to the condenser cooling arrangement
needed for the project, typically cooling tower or air cooled.
II. Our Technology and its Evolution
Last Stage Buckets
GE has LSBs available for:
All last stage buckets are fully validated designs with extensive hours of operation in the field. Validation data can be provided
upon request.
GE continues to invest in research and operating analysis of its installed fleet to provide customers with improved combined cycle
steam turbine operational flexibility. LSB studies conducted to address operation at elevated back pressure conditions have been
conducted, including:
Unsteadiness of steam flow downstream of the last stage bucket and consequential broadband stimuli induced vibration
Windage heating experienced in the LP hood
Last stage bucket loading
These studies led to increases in allowable exhaust pressure operation limits for LSB designs with continuously coupled, side entry,
cover, nub and sleeve connection for 3000 RPM and 3600 RPM applications. Detailed operational guidelines are available in the technical
brochure GEK116554, which is available from your GE sales or service manager. The backpressure trip limit has been increased from
9 to 11.5 HgA for annulus velocities of 200 ft/s and above. The trip for annulus velocities less than 150 ft/s remains unchanged
at 7.5 HgA.

Impulse and Reaction Technologies
GEs D Series combined cycle steam turbine designs incorporate both impulse and reaction technologies. The 109D-10, 207D-11,
207D-11A, 207D-11D and 109D-12 are impulse designs, with Dense Pack features such as higher reaction, compact stage spacing,
advanced seals and integral cover buckets. The 109D-14, 207D-17, and A Series combined cycle products incorporate our HEAT reaction
steam path technology, providing additional improvement in overall efficiency.
Improvements in Diaphragm Designs
Singlets* are a standard feature in GEs current impulse designs. This advanced nozzle diaphragm design implements the latest
manufacturing techniques to achieve improved performance. The singlet design incorporates a precision-machined steam path along
with a mechanical construction design. Singlets enable advanced nozzle designs with tight tolerance control2X improvement in area
control, 3X improvement in surface finish and profile, and 5X improvement in trailing edge profile.
Singlet constructed diaphragms are one of the options introduced to replace traditional constructed diaphragms to address dishing
(distortion) of diaphragms found in service during maintenance outages.
N2 Packing Design Enhancements
GE has enhanced its N2 packing casing design for combined
HP/IP configurations incorporating new robust main fit geometry.
The enhanced design is the result of a rigorous study to address
potential cracking associated with material properties variations
and includes:
TIL 1627 with respect to potential N2 packing head groove cracking
Geometry changes to reduce stress levels
Improved horizontal joint sealing through additional bolting
provisions
Improved maintainability through the addition of jacking
provisions to facilitate easier disassembly for maintenance

Integral Cover Buckets
In 2000, GE introduced its first generation (Gen 1)
Integral Cover Bucket (ICB) in fossil Dense Pack applications,
followed by the incorporation of advanced integral covered
bucket designs in the D Series combined cycle products.
Todays Gen 2 and T-root ICB designs have a full rhombic
cover design, integrating advanced sealing technologies
and clean root geometry, resulting in a smooth steam
path sidewalls design and enhanced performance.
Variable Clearance Positive Pressure Packing
Variable Clearance Positive Pressure Packing (VCPPP) was originally introduced in GEs fossil Dense Pack fossil applications in the mid-1990s.
Todays VCPPPs include abradable coatings that improve long-term efficiency by maintaining sharpness of the sealing teeth. An interlocking tooth
configuration provides reduced start-up and turning gear operation rubbing, further reducing leakage up to 20% compared to conventional tooth
geometry. Abradable coatings were first introduced in GEs HEAT technology and are now used extensively in GE steam turbine products.

Brush Seals
Advanced seals were developed and tested at GEs Global
Research Center to understand seal behavior under simulated
steam turbine operating conditions. To date, brush seals offer
the tightest clearance amongst all seals along with a significant
improvement in leakage control and overall improved steam
turbine performance.
With advancements achieved in bucket design, brush seals are
now employed at tip locations, significantly reducing leakage as
compared to traditional bucket tip seal designs. A brush seal bristle
pack is able to withstand transient events while maintaining the
integrity of the seal. Applications at bucket tips are intended to
provide flexible clearance control while also being able to handle
transient events without losing the integrity of the seal.
III. Expanding Combined Cycle Platforms to 2400 psig
To provide customers with further increases in efficiency in the CC steam turbine fleet, GE drew from extensive fossil steam turbine
experience where double shell construction has been used at inlet pressures of 2400 psig for over 60 years.
Applying our experience with the D Series fossil unit fleet and fossil-to-CC retrofits, GE incorporated double shell construction into the
D Series CC steam turbine and developed the 207D-11D, capable of operating at a nominal pressure of 2400 psig.
The 207D-11D
Similar in architecture to the 207D-11A, the 207D-11D is a reheat opposed flow HP/IP design with a double flow LP section, capable of
steam turbine inlet nominal conditions of 2400 psig/1050F/1050F. The design is currently available for 60 Hz applications, for 207 and 307
configurations and like the 207D-11 and 207D-11A, the 207D-11D can accommodate GEs family of LSBs referenced earlier. The robust
design also supports extractions for district heating or gas turbine steam injection applications to fit customers needs.

Figure 9. Brush Seal at Rotor
Figure 10. Single and Double Shell Construction
Inner and Outer Shell Construction Single Shell Construction
Main steam and reheat inlets are located in the lower half along with the HP exhaust with the crossover located in the upper half close to
the HP exhaust. This allows the inner shell to be bathed with IP exhaust steam, eliminating potential thermal distortion from top to bottom.
Benefits of GEs 207D-11D design configuration include:
Reducing temperature on the outer shell to improve shell life and mitigate outer shell thermal distortion
Dramatically simplified and standardized bolting design to reduce flow losses at inlet and exhaust annuli (same material and same
sized studs are used for 90% of the outer shell)
Location of main fit enables the shell to grow in the same direction as the rotor, and reduce axial clearance
This arrangement/configuration of shells, similar to GE fossil designs, allows for cooling of the inner shell, improving both inner shell life
and clearance control.
The steam path features are similar to those of the 207D-11A, including GEs latest buckets, nozzles and seal technologies.
District Heating
GE has developed combined cycle steam turbines (CCST) with
the flexibility to provide customized solutions for large extraction
applications. Our solutions cover a wide range of designs to match
varying customer needs, including: extraction from the LP cross over,
extraction(s) from the HP/IP sections, and the integration of a SSS
clutch between the IP and LP sections for increased district heating
extraction applications.
IV. HEAT Steampath Technology
The success of the 107A-14 HEAT combined cycle steam turbine
launch in 60 Hz was quickly followed with the launch of GEs
109A-15 combined cycle steam turbine for 50 Hz. Similar to the
107A-14, the 109A-15 has gone through extensive field validation
confirming its exceptional operability and performance.
Further improvements led to GEs next generation 50 Hz A series
steam turbine product for combined cycle applications, the GE
109A-17, extending inlet pressure and temperature capabilities
to 2400 psig/1112F/1050F. Added in 2010, this 109A-17 design
delivers enhanced performance that is integrated into GEs 109FB
single shaft standard combined cycle power plant offering for
50 Hz customers.
Taking HEAT from A Series to D Series
In response to customers requiring larger output combined cycle
power generation plants with improved base load and part load efficiency, enhanced start-up reliability, and improved turndown, GE
developed its FlexEfficiency* 50 standard combined cycle power plant. This new 50 Hz single shaft plant is an innovative total plant design
that sets a new standard for high efficiency and operational flexibility.

Figure 12. HEAT Technology
The 109D-14 combined cycle steam turbine was developed for this single shaft arrangement supporting GEs integrated plant design solution.
Nominally rated at 180 MW, the 109D-14 uses a three-casing design architecture with HEAT steam path technology with steam inlet
capabilities of 2400 psig/1112F/1112F delivering shaft efficiencies of greater than 40%. Its three-casing design and drum-type rotor
architecture along with high reaction HEAT steam path technology and stationary blade blinglet system enables improved clearance
controls across shorter bearing spans, providing improved operability and flex-efficiency.
The two-flow side-exhaust configuration reduces overall plant capital expenditure, allowing ground-level connections of the LP hood into the
lateral condenser with a reduced overall centerline height of GEs single shaft plant design.
Integration of an SSS clutch in GEs 109D-14 steam turbine design also provides improved operational start up flexibility and maintenance
benefits of the single shaft gas turbine train, allowing the CCST to be clutched out and on turning gear for cool-down while maintenance is
being conducted on the gas turbine. It reduces auxiliary steam requirements during hot start-up cycles (shutdowns typically less than six
hours). This enables gas turbine output of 85% load in less than twenty minutes, and can reduce customer planned maintenance cycles, by
two less days typically.
The key features of the 109D-14 steam turbine are:
Separate HP, IP and LP configuration improved sealing and
clearance control for increased efficiency
Proven HEAT steam path technology
HP, IP and LP drum rotor construction with blinglet nozzles
Advanced 820 mm and 1040 mm LSBs with improved aerodynamic
and dovetail configurations
Integrated SSS clutch in front standard increasing plant
operational flexibility
Single-side two-flow exhaust hood reduced plant centerline height
Common LP hood architecture across both cooling tower and
air-cooled condenser applications
207D-17 for the 60 Hz Market
Much like the 50 Hz market, the 60 Hz market has the same need for high base and part load efficiency, start-up reliability, and improved
turndown. GEs 207D-17 steam turbine was developed for the multi-shaft 207FA arrangement, and is rated up to 450 MW, using a three-
casing design architecture also incorporating HEAT steam path technology. The 207D-17 uses much of the same architecture as the
109D-14, accommodating current inlet conditions of 2400 psig/1050F/1050F with plans to increase inlet pressure and temperature
capabilities to 2400 psig/1112F/1112F in the future.
The 207D-17 combined cycle steam turbine is designed to accommodate the full range of duct firing up to 100%, and uses a two-flow
down-exhaust configuration and GEs advanced 40 (1016 mm) steel LSB for the cooling tower configuration and its 34.5 (876 mm) LSB
for air-cooled condenser applications.
