Impact of inlet air cooling on gas turbine performance

Szymon Jarzębowski, Ewa Pyzik, Andrzej Miller

Abstract


In this article different possibilities of gas turbine inlet air cooling were presented. The method of defining power gain caused by air cooling was discussed. The results of increasing power output level of several different turbines and one gas turbine in combine cycle in domestic ambient conditions were presented and discussed. Significant turbine power gains were received.

Keywords
