The main purpose of the fan in a turbine engine is to provide thrust for the aircraft. However, if you remove the fan and replace it with a generator, the turbine element of the engine can produce electricity.
Compared to conventional industrial gas turbines, ADGT’s offer the following benefits:
- Compact design – allowing for quick installation in remote sites;
- Reliability – aircraft engines clock hours of use in on-wing applications;
- Flexibility – quick power up processes mean they are ideal for backup generators in critical infrastructure such as hospitals and factories.
