The Tempest is the most recent power generation package produced by European Gas Turbines in England. It is currently in the evaluation phase of a 3 year program leading to production in 1996 at 7.5MWe and single-shaft configuration.

The machine has been designed for base load operation using gas and liquid fuels and is particularly suitable for combined heat and power applications. It is a development of the existing Typhoon and Tornado family of engines but includes a number of features to enhance its performance.

This paper discusses the design techniques and describes the gas turbine engine core. It also presents the design validation and service recommendations.
