This model adds the performance characteristics to the Turbine_Base model, by means of 2D interpolation tables.

The performance characteristics are described by two characteristic equations: the first relates the flow number phic, the pressure ratio PR and the referred speed N_T; the second relates the efficiency eta, the flow number phic, and the referred speed N_T [1].

The performance maps are tabulated into two differents tables, tablePhic and tableEta which express phic and eta as a function of N_T and PR respectively, where N_T represents the first row and PR the first column [2]. The referred speed N_T is defined as a percentage of the design referred speed.

The Modelica.Blocks.Tables.CombiTable2D interpolates the tables to obtain values of referred flow and efficiency at given levels of referred speed.
