A system of dense packaging of turbomachinery in a gas turbine engine by means of close-coupling of components and by the ability to rotate various engine components with respect to other engine components is disclosed. In addition, spool shaft rotational direction may be reversed to suit the application. In multiple engine configurations, the same ability to close-couple and rotate components and to reverse shaft rotational direction in order to rearrange the engine geometry package is used for packaging two or more gas turbine engines to achieve high p...
1. A gas turbine engine, comprising: at least first and second turbo-compressor spools, each of the at least first and second turbo-compressor spools comprising a centrifugal compressor in mechanical communication with a radial turbine;at least one intercooler positioned in a fluid path between the at least first and second turbo-compressor spools;a recuperator operable to transfer thermal energy from an output gas of a power turbine to a compressed gas produced by the at least first and second turbo-compressor spools and thereby form a further heated ga...
