Two gas turbine engines are interconnected through a pneumatic, mechanical, hydraulic, or power link. This power link runs from the gas producer shaft of one engine to the gas producer shaft of the other engine either delivering or absorbing power directly to or from each other. The gas producer section of a gas turbine engine comprises a compressor directly coupled to a turbine which drives the compressor and a combustor positioned between the compressor and the turbine. The unit delivers hot gases to another turbine on a separate independent shaft whic...
A system for producing power utilizing gas turbine engines comprising: a primary engine including a gas generator and a power turbine; a secondary engine including: a compressor; a combustor; and a turbine drivingly engaged with said compressor; drive means selectively coupling said gas generator of said primary engine and said secondary engine for augmenting the output power of the primary engine and for achieving improved fuel consumption of said system at low power levels.
