Improvement in gas turbine efficiency to meet the summer demand
Author(s): Subhash Sharma, Anuj Agarwal
Abstract: A gas turbine is a machine with internal combustion like diesel engine today it is considered to be a critical part of the future heat and power generation system as well as several parts of the transportation sector but The basic gas turbine has low efficiency. The degradation of the gas turbine output power with the rise in ambient air temperature posses a serious problem during the summer when demand for the turbine o/p is at its highest additionally gas turbine loss capacity over their life time due to this degradation this factor is of the major concern for the researches several methods are suggested for improving the cycle performance in previous studies all of which offer improved performance and increased specific output compared to a simple gas turbine Cooling of intake air is one of the most popular method of the improving the efficiency in the present paper the result of the integration of the alternative regenerator arrangement with different popular cooling method for compressor intake air are presented and the improvements that can be achieved are discussed.
