Performance Test Codes (PTC) for gas turbines are about to experience a happy convergence of revisions to three principal documents. Several aspects of gas turbines are under consideration in ASME PTC 22 Gas Turbines, ASME PTC 36 Gas Turbine Installations Sound Emissions and ASME PTC 51 Gas Turbine Inlet Air Conditioning Equipment, all of which are in various stages of final development. These PTCs can be used to specify equipment and to perform verification testing to ensure conformance to performance requirements. This overview of the three PTCs will address the key concerns driving the development of the standards, the general issues addressed and the application and significance of uncertainties relevant to each.
