    Abstract

    This paper identifies fuel handling problems and the complete fuel system. The greatest single factor contributing to distress of the high temperature turbine is shown to be fuel contamination. The management of gas turbine fuel systems is described to be based on maximum equipment utilization and on minimum maintenance downtime and minimum maintenance costs.
