ABSTRACT
In a combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plant, electricity is the output, which is obtained
from a high temperature heat input which is generally obtained by burning of fuel. When the turbine
blades are in continuous usage, they are vulnerable to high cycle fatigue failures. The major reason
for these failures is the resonance which occurs at blade critical speed dry startup and shut down
condition and in certain cases due to excursion of machine near an operating speed which is close to
one of resonances. From the above criteria the failure of a First Stage rotor blade leads to callastropic
effect. The material of the blade is considered as CMSX4 which is Nickel based super Alloy (Al2o3,
TiN and AIN) .Mathematical calculations using inlet and outlet triangles and S.N diagram approach
are carried out. From the paper, it can be concluded that due to the continuous operation of a CMSX4
rotor blade, power capacity of plant increases.
Keywords: CCGT, CMSX4
1. INTRODUTION
High pressure steam produced in the thermal power plant with water as working medium
requires components which are bulky and should possess great strength. When high temperatures are
generated, expensive alloys made of nickel or cobalt must be used in the place of inexpensive steel.
The lower temperature of a steam plant is fixed by the boiling point of water while the alloy limits
the practical steam temperature to 655°C .Due to constraining of these limits, the steam plant has a
fixed upper efficiency of 35 to 42%.

The main components of an open circuit gas turbine cycle are a compressor, a turbine and a
combustor. Lower quantities of expensive materials can be used in gas turbines because the amount
of metal that must tolerate the high temperatures and pressures is relatively smaller. The input
temperature (900 to 1,400 °C) to the turbine and the output temperature (450 to 650 °C) of the flue
gas are relatively higher in such cycles. This is therefore high enough to provide heat for a second
cycle which uses steam as the working fluid; (a Rankine cycle).
Steam is generated in a combined cycle power plant by using the heat of the gas turbine's exhaust
and passing it through a heat recovery steam generator (hrsg) with a live steam temperature
maintained between 420 and 580 °C. Cooling of the condenser of the Rankine cycle is usually done
by water from seas, lakes, rivers or cooling towers. The temperature obtained so can be as less as
15 °C.
In an automotive power plant, an Otto, Diesel, Atkinson or similar engine would provide one
part of the cycle and the waste heat would power a Rankine cycle steam or Stirling engine, which
could either power ancillaries (such as the alternator) or be connected to the crankshaft by a turbo
compounding system.

Blade fatigue is recognized to be a major cause of downtime in turbo machines. The impact
of blade failure can be very costly in terms of cost production and part replacements.

2. LITERATURE REVIEW
A Survey by 'Dewey and Rieger(2000) reveals that high cycle fatigue is alone is responsible
for at least 40% failures in high pressure stage of steam turbines. Blade failures due to fatigue are
predominantly vibration related and suppression of blade vibration becomes a priority item for
reducing the number of industrial blading failures. ‘Stuart Moffatt( 2003) describes paper on blade
forced response prediction for industrial gas turbines.'Mikio Oi (1999) suggested structural analysis
and shape optimization in turbocharger development.
3. PROBLEM DEFINITION
The present study attempts to understand and analyze the turbine blade through Finite
Element Modeling with a view to determine stresses and estimate the blade fatigue life.
4. METHODOLOGY
The gas turbine rotor blade is analyzed using ANSYS 9.0 for the mechanical stresses. By
constructing velocity triangles at inlet and exit of the rotor blade the tangential and axial gas forces
are determined. Moving blades in the turbine are meant for conservation of the kinetic energy of the
flowing steam or gas into the mechanical work on the turbine shell the work done by working fluid is
transmitted to the shaft through the disc on which the blades are mounted.
The attachments of the blade are drum or disc of turbine short blades having small centrifugal
forces are generally made with T-shaped tangs and are attached to the discs. If the blade and the
tangs are of same width spacers are used to get the proper blade passage.

5. RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS
Typical stress field on the blade at resonance frequency is 1773HZ is given .It can be seen
that maximum stresses 70.549 kpa is developed at trailing edge of the root of the blade.

6. CONCLUSIONS
The structural, life estimation and modal analysis are carried out. From the Worth Maximum
stress induced is within safe limit. Maximum stresses and strains are observed at the root of the
turbine blade and upper surface along the blade roots. So it can be suggested that Design, Analysis
and Life Estimation of Blade is Safe.
