The use of multishaft industrial gas turbines is expanding in various industries because of variation in their structure, flexibility, and their appropriate power generation range. In this study, a semi-simplified black-box dynamic modeling has been done for the three-shaft gas turbine MGT-30. Modeling is done in such a way that all the important variables can be calculated and evaluated. One of the important parameters in dynamic modeling of gas turbine is the time lag relevant to the performance properties of sensors and actuators of the system. In this study, in order to measure the transfer function, physical and actual characteristics of the system were applied. Depending on the type of thermocouples (TCs) used, their activation time was eliminated using a lead compensator. In modeling of the system, the functions were related to the implementation of off-design conditions for compliance with the outputs of a real system model, and outputs were presented proportional to the rate and type of changes for each variable. Finally, validation was done by comparing the power-turbine generated power, exhaust gas temperatures downstream of low pressure (LP) turbine, and speeds of LP and high-pressure (HP) turbines with the real values of Qeshm turbogenerator power plant.
