Noise Characteristics of a Micro Gas Turbine for Use in a Serial Hybrid Concept 2014-01-2066

The development of energy-efficient and lightweight vehicles is a major challenge for researchers and engineers in the automotive industry, with one solution being the use of micro gas turbines in serial hybrid vehicles. Among other advantages, the use of a micro gas turbine instead of a reciprocating engine enables a high reliability and low emissions. What makes the concept of using a gas turbine even more interesting are its special NVH characteristics, which are quite different from those of a reciprocating engine. Besides the fact that a gas turbine in general produces less noise and vibration than a diesel engine of the same power, the characteristic noise spectrum is also very different. In this paper, the noise characteristics of a micro gas turbine are compared to those typical for a common reciprocating engine and the sources of the noise are considered. The data that form the basis for these analyses were obtained using measurements on a 70 kW micro gas turbine that is designed to be used in a serial hybrid concept for buses. Appropriate noise control strategies are discussed.
