Abstract One of the methods of gas turbine performance improvement is steam injection into combustion chamber. Moreover, heat recovery is introduced as another method for enhancing energy and exergy efficiencies. In this paper, these two methods were combined in a system of Integrated Heat Recovery Steam Injected Gas Turbine (IHRSI) equipped with an anti-surge system. A heat exchanger was used for waste heat recovery of the gas turbine exhaust and steam production. In these conditions, due to the energy balance in the HRSG, there was a relation between steam temperature and steam mass flow rate. One problem in IHRSI is determining optimum steam temperature. The increment of temperature decreases the steam mass flow rate and consequently has opposite effects on the various parameters. Therefore, in the present study, a comprehensive model based on the energy, exergy, environmental and economic analyses (4E) was presented. Eventually, the developed model introduced the optimum conditions of injected steam into combustion chamber. The optimum steam temperature of 318.5 °C was found in the case of 38 °C ambient temperature and 10% relative humidity. IHRSI at the optimum steam temperature increased net power output and thermal efficiency by 56 MW and 4.6% and reduced the cost of power generation by 25.5%.

Regeneration and steam injection are both well proven as well as promising modifications which can boost power, increase thermal efficiency, part load performance and limit NOx emissions. However, their benefits are still largely unexploited. To investigate these modifications, a comprehensive but practical model is established as an essential improvement on the air standard models. Our multipronged modeling approach enables simultaneous monitoring and optimization of thermodynamic, economic and...

Abstract Regions that experience ambient temperatures rising during hot seasons have significant losses and impacts on both output power and efficiency of the gas turbine. When the ambient temperature increases, the air mass flow rate decreases, and hence leads to reduce the gas turbine produced power. Ambient air can be cooled by using either evaporative cooler or absorption chiller. Currently, the performance was simulated thermodynamically for a natural gas operated gas turbine. The performan...

Gas turbine thermal efficiency has significant dependency on climatic conditions. Evaporative cooling is commonly utilized as an inlet air cooling technique in hot and dry climates though an increase in atmospheric humidity will considerably diminish its performance. Implementing desiccants to dehumidify air will enhance evaporative inlet cooling effectiveness. Furthermore, a recently commercialized cooler named Maisotsenko cooler can be integrated in gas turbine inlet air cooling to replace con...

Biological municipal wastewater treatments lead to high sludge generation and long retention times, and the possibilities for recovery of the energy content of the input waste stream are very limited due to the low operating temperature. As an alternative, we propose a sequence of exclusively physicochemical, non-biological stages that avoid sludge production, while producing high-grade energy outflows favoring recovery, all in shorter times. Ultrafiltration and evaporation units provide a front...
