Treated atmospheric air comes to the air duct 4, then it goes to the compressor 3 inlet. The air is compressed and heated up to 250 ° degrees due to the process.

Then the air comes to the air-gas (recuperative) heat exchanger 10, where it is heated to 500°. This solution allows increasing plant electrical efficiency two times

Then the heated compressed air before the combustion chamber 6 is mixed with gas fuel under high pressure 9. Homogeneous air and gas fuel mixture comes to combustion chamber. Preliminary air and fuel mixing renders possible to lower exhaust gas emission to 24 ppmv at 15% O2 at electrical loading range 0 to 100%

Heated to 9260C exhaust gases come to turbine 7 wheel and while widening rotate it and compressor wheel and high-speed generator placed on this shaft.

Leaving turbine 7 exhaust gas with temperature of 648° come to recuperative heat exchanger through the gas duct 8, and transfer their heat to the air after compressor. Exhaust gas temperature after recuperative heat exchanger is 287 °.

At recuperative heat exchanger inlet 10 is the bypass gate which directs exhaust gas through bypass gas duct 14 or directly through the recovery boiler 12. In the recovery boiler (gas-water heat exchanger) exhaust gases transfer its heat to system water, which is heated to required temperature. Exhaust gas temperature at recovery boiler outlet is 77 °.

The reducing gear is missing in the microturbine structure. Rotor rate speed is practically independent from the load and is maintained at 68 thousand rpm. It makes possible to take 100% load at ~ 0,3 sec.

Produced generator radio-frequency voltage subject to double transformation: from radio-frequency alternate to direct and then to alternate 400V with frequency of 50Hz. This provides output 3-phase voltage with regular sine wave.
