A compressor starting torque converter method and apparatus for high power rotating equipment strings includes a compressor starting torque converter (CSTC) (16) and gearing to make the input and output speed conform to the speed and power requirements of the at least one compressor (4) at the end of the string. The string also includes a prime mover (10), either a motor or gas turbine with a starter motor. The CSTC is driven by a prime mover that has been geared down (via 18) to an appropriate speed for efficient power transfer, followed by a gear incre...
1. A dual end gear compressor starting torque converter (CSTC) for use in a string of rotating machines, said dual end gear CSTC comprising: a compressor starting torque converter (CSTC);an input end and an output end;a lock-up mechanism for mechanically connecting the CSTC input end to the CSTC output end at synchronous speed between the input end and the output end;a speed reducing gear train at the input end comprises: a housing surrounding and enclosing said speed reducing gear train,a speed reducing gear train input shaft connected to a high speed g...
