  • Patent number: 10570769
    Abstract: A machine having a shaft with a stage having a first shaft section having a first diameter, a second shaft section having a second diameter that is shorter than the first, forming a radially extending rotatable shaft end surface; a housing; and a bearing supporting the shaft on the housing by its second shaft section, and lubricated by a lubrication fluid. A sealing chamber has a sealing fluid that prevents the lubrication from leaving the bearing, and is axially limited by the shaft end surface and bearing end side, and radially inwardly limited by the second shaft section released from the bearing. A radially extending and stationary separator plate is in the sealing chamber to achieve an aerodynamic shielding of the bearing end side from the shaft end surface. When the shaft is rotating, the region between the separator plate and the bearing end side is substantially non-rotational.

  • Patent number: 10077718
    Abstract: A method for operating a gas turbine plant having a gas turbine and an electric generator driven by the gas turbine. The method includes detecting an instantaneous power of the gas turbine plant; comparing the detected instantaneous power with a power limit value; and limiting the instantaneous power when the result of the comparison is that the detected instantaneous power is equal to or greater than the power limit value. A step of detecting at least one operating parameter of the gas turbine plant and a step of determining the power limit value as a function of the at least one detected operating parameter are then implemented, wherein the at least one operating parameter of the gas turbine plant includes an ambient pressure and the power limit value is increased when the ambient pressure increases.
