1 Claim-
(Cl. 122-24)
The present invention relates to elastic ?uid
generator arrangement of the type which includes
a boiler and auxiliaries for operating the boiler
and driven by a gas turbine receiving combustion
5 gases dischargedfrom the boiler. More specifi
cally, the invention relates to arrangements in
cluding in .addition to the gas turbine for driv
ing the auxiliaries another prime mover such as
an internal combustion engine.
vThe object of my invention is to provide an im
proved elastic ?uid generator arrangement
, whereby better eiliciency is attained and quick
starting of the boiler assured. This is accom
intermediary of the gas turbine shaft Ho. The
engine 25 has an’exhaust conduit 26 which in
accordance with my invention is connected to the
nozzle box 22 to discharge exhaust gases into
said box and thereby to permit utilization‘ of the 5
available energy of these exhaust gases.
‘ In the arrangement of Figs. 1 and 2 the ex
haust gases from the engine and from the boilen
are "mixed in the nozzle box whereby the tem
perature of the exhaust gas from the engine is 10
lowered and that of the boiler raised. Both of
these effects are desirable in that ?rst they pre
