Utilisation of sludge gas for power generation through aero gas turbines
- 43 Downloads
Utilisation of sludge gas as a fuel for power generation in gas turbines is discussed. Such a scheme is likely to be very cost effective particularly when the gas turbines are derived from aircraft after their flying life is over. The development and preliminary trials of a demonstration plant in Bangalore, based on a Rolls Royce “Dart” turbo-prop engine were promising and are described here. It is estimated that with the present proposal it may be feasible to meet over 30% of the domestic consumption of electricity under favourable conditions.
