The power turbine operates at a temperature of over 2000 degrees Centigrade and each blade is subjected to several tons of centrifugal force.
The compressor operating points are determined based on the available power adjusted by the effect of off-optimum power turbine speed, the suction and discharge pressure (the isentropic head) imposed by the pipeline condition.
Power turbine is mounted downstream charging turbine to recover waste heat from the exhaust.
For the smaller horsepower PT-6s, the power turbine, or PT, is a single wheel connected to a complex, two-stage planetary gear reduction section which, again, carries its own overhaul and inspection requirements that aren't the same as the engine itself or that of other components.
