This reference book provides a comprehensive insight into the development and history of the industrial gas turbine covering a most amazing account of technological developments. The story starts in the early twentieth century and continues with the most developments through to the present day, continuing to impress the engineering world. This includes the most recent gas turbine technology developments.

The book has sections covering the work of the Pioneers, technology developments, thermodynamics, cycles, economics, configurations, technology trends, combined cycle, aero-derivatives, small and large heavy duty turbines, micro turbines, related technologies, fuels, materials, performance, combustion, emissions, reliability, and availability. Ninety nine industrial gas turbine manufacturers are listed, who have been involved in the gas turbine story since the early days. The book lists all known manufacturers from Europe, North America and The Far East. More than 1,900 gas turbine models are identified to the present time with ratings from 3KW to 500MW+.

This reference book is intended to be of interest to power engineers and the gas turbine industry worldwide, including both experienced engineers as well as those wishing to study and learn about all aspects of the modern industrial gas turbine.
