stator blade

stator blade

stator blade
The fixed/variable-incidence blade attached to the axial-flow compressor stator casing. The first stage of the stators normally is variable incidence, whereas the later stages are fixed. They help direct the airflow at the optimum angle onto the rotor blades.

In order to improve the operating efficiency of the gas turbine and to improve the matching relationship between the compressor and the gas turbine, how to adjust the stator blade angle will become a problem that researchers need to face.
As the rotor and stator blade profiles are not exactly the same and the experiment has some errors as well, the maximum relative error of [V.sub.t]/[V.sub.t max] is 2.3.
The rotor outlet static pressure is calculated in a manner similar to the stator blade section where:
Varieties of dehumidification equipment have been adopted such as stator blade suction devices and humidity-removing stages to reduce the amount of droplets actively.
* The equation (4) enables to realize the simulation of the fabrication process of the stator blade by means of FEM
Sullivan in 1995 on a fully 3-D gas-turbine stator blade produced interesting results.
An official from the Land, Infrastructure and Transport Ministry said a stator blade does not usually suffer damage.
Although the EGT, ABB, and AlliedSignal turbines are distinct machines, they share certain design features that illustrate trends in turbine manufacturing: dry-low-emissions (DLE) systems, split casings, variable stator blade stages, dual-fuel systems, single-crystal cast blades, and advanced cooling systems.
