Project summary

High temperature gas turbine can be used for the high efficiency (more than 50%) power production both in a nuclear plant coupled with HTGR and in a fossil-fired plant. The magnetic bearing is a new aerospace technology requiring no maintenance and is thought to take the place of the oil lubricated bearing for the high performance application. The project's purpose is design study on a gas turbine and a gas circulator with magnetic bearings. This work helps both to solve technical problems concerning creation of plants for power production without environmental degradation on the basis of nuclear power plants and to support high qualification of participating specialists. It is in conformity with the ISTC's objectives.

The OKBM has many experiences and high ability in the rotating machine technology's. In particular, it has designed, fabricated and operated helium gas circulators with magnetic bearings. During development of the project a experience of creation of nuclear power plants, calculated analyses and standard approaches, and results obtained on OKBM test facilities will be utilized. Calculations will be performed on the basis of proved programmes and up-to-date computers. Therefore, a fruitful result can be obtained in the designated duration.
