This paper describes the newly introduced Ruston TA2500 gas turbine. The design is based on that of the well proven TA1750 and retains its outstanding features of reliability, long life, and ease of maintenance. Component efficiencies have been improved to increase the overall thermal performance and the Ruston designed solid-state control system with its Rustronic solid-state governor has been incorporated to give greater operating flexibility. Other changes include a compressor driven auxiliary gearbox which obviates the necessity for motor driven auxiliary pumps and a new design of frame similar to that of the Ruston TB5000 gas turbine.
