qIn recent years the gas turbine, in combination with the steam turbine, has played an ever-increasing role in power generation. Despite the rapid advances in both output and efficiency, the basic theory of the gas turbine has remained unchanged. The layout of this new edition is broadly similar to the original, but greatly expanded and updated, comprising an outline of the basic theory, aerodynamic design of individual components, and the prediction of off-design performance. The addition of a chapter devoted to the mechanical design of gas turbines greatly enhances the scope of the book.q--Publisher's website.Figure 3.25 shows a schematic of the Honeywell 131 APU used in the MD80 family of aircraft. The load compressor is a ... For engine starting this APU can provide about 165 kg/min of compressed air at 4 atmospheres and about 215 kW. A similar but more powerful unit is used on the A380.
