H. A. Kolakowski, TRW/DSSG/Quest, 1980. Chapter 4 Gas Turbine Systems Theory GAS TURBINE OPERATING CYCLE T he gas turbine cycle is best depicted by the Brayton Cycle. The characteristics of the operating cycle are shown on the pressure-temperature map, the pressure-specific volume map, and the temperature-entropy map (Figure 4-1a to 4-1c). The gas turbine, as a continuous flow machine, is best described by the first law of thermodynamics. 2 ft lbf/Btu Work, Btu/lbm *Here mass flow is designated by W to distinguish it from 1W2, which is used to designate work.
