Additive Manufactured 180-MW F-class Gas Turbine Flow Path Vane Sets – Innovative Approaches and Operator Performance Benefits
In today’s fast changing regulatory and market environment power plant operators are looking at new innovative technology and performance upgrades to keep their gas turbine assets relevant and prepare for future market requirements. Fast pace of global Energy Transition triggers industry's service providers to deploy innovative technologies and methods to accelerate rate of new products and services introduction to the market. By deploying new technology such as additive manufacturing (AM), 3D printing tooling or fast milling cores and wax patterns, service providers have been able to opens doors to new design possibilities which are otherwise not possible with traditional manufacturing methods. The technologies have been put into practice as a lever to accelerate product development and production cycle time, costs of manufacturing, while improving design capabilities. These attributes can be used to optimize maintenance intervals, improve performance, and reduce overall life cycle management costs for customers. Early and pragmatic evaluation and adoption of these technologies by PSM to support our customers have provided promising results. PSM was the first in the industry to install Additive Manufacturing vane in commercially operating industrial gas turbine. Since 2014, PSM started using AM for F-class gas turbine combustor repairs. In 2016, use of rapid prototyping of wax pattern component reduced manufacturing development time by a factor of four allowing for timely new F-class product. This new paradigm - going from "design for manufacturing" to "manufacturing for design" is offering opportunities to find to new ways to offer innovative services solutions that provide superior performance benefits resulting in improvement and optimization of plant performance. PSM is able to deliver today gas turbine components that improve engine operation, performance and extend maintenance intervals. The presentation will offer an overview of the latest products developed with these new manufacturing technologies, highlight particular key development challenges, with respect to new designs and processes, and share commercial experience additive manufactured F-class flow path vanes, and review multiple performance benefit options applicable to multiple OEM frame engines.
