Abstract
In this paper, the effects of various compressor inlet air cooling methods to increase the performance of Shahid Hashemi-Nezhad gas turbines refinery were investigated. These methods included media, fogging, and absorption chillers as common inlet air cooling methods and pressure drop station as novel cooling method. By using the exergy, environmental, and economic analysis, the best method for compressor inlet air cooling was selected. Based on the results, the absorption chiller system had the highest compressor inlet air temperature drop and increased the thermal and exergy efficiencies of cycle by about 2.5 and 3%, respectively, in hot season. Using absorption chiller, pressure drop station, fogging, and media had further reduction in CO2 and CO than simple gas turbine, respectively. Finally based on the net present value and internal rate of return coefficients, the pressure drop station method is the most economically feasible option.

A new combustion concept, the so called RML, was investigated to validate its application as a gas turbine combustor for combustor outlet temperatures over 1973 K. The feasibility study of the RML combustor was conducted with zero dimensional combustion calculations. The emission characteristics of RQL, LEAN, EGR and RML combustors were compared. The calculation results showed that the RQL combustor has lower NOx emissions than the LEAN at high outlet temperature. NOx emissions of the RML combus...

Experimental investigations have been conducted to understand the combustion characteristics of a swirl-stabilized double-cone pre-mixed burner used for industrial gas turbines for power generation. NOx and CO emissions, extinction limit, combustion noise, pressure loss, and wall temperature distributions were measured for various operating conditions. Results show that NOx emissions are decreased with increasing air/fuel ratio or decreasing air load unless the air load is too small. CO emission...

Gas/steam combined cycle is synergetic combination of Brayton cycle based topping cycle and Rankine cycle based bottoming cycle, which have capability of operating independently too. Combined cycle performance depends on the constituent cycles and it can be reasonably improved by enhancing gas cycle performance using gas turbine blade cooling. Amongst different cooling techniques the transpiration cooling offers effective utilization of coolant as compared to film cooling because of better shrou...

Abstract At the present time in Romania, the transition from the natural gas transportation system to the distribution system is done only thru the use of pressure reducing stations. Here the pressure drop is usually done by using throttle valves or pressure reducing valves, where the gas energy is spent without doing any work. In this article we propose the use of turbo-expanders in the pressure reducing stations, where the natural gas pressure from the transportation grid is high and needs to ...

Cooling the air entering the compressor section of gas turbine power plants is a proven method of increasing their power output, especially during peak summer demand, and it is increasingly being used in power plants worldwide. Two turbine inlet air cooling (TIAC) systems are widely used: evaporative cooling and mechanical chilling. In this work, the prospects of using a hybrid turbine inlet air cooling (TIAC) system are investigated. The hybrid system consists of mechanical chilling followed by...

We investigated key design features of the integrated gasification solid oxide fuel cell/gas turbine (IG-SOFC/GT) system including carbon dioxide capture. Two different types of system configurations that depend on the carbon dioxide capture scheme (pre- and oxycombustion captures) were examined. Research focus was given to the effect of the gas turbine specification on the performance of the entire system. IG-SOFC/GT systems using two different gas turbines were analyzed, and their performances...

Determining the maximum temperature of gas turbine is one of the challenges in energy conversion to achieve the suitable performance of gas turbine systems. For this purpose, based on the energy, exergy, environmental, and economic (4E) analyses, the effects of changing turbine inlet temperature (TIT) on a gas turbine power plant in northeastern Iran were studied. The results showed that increasing TIT enhanced net power and efficiency, so that increasing TIT about 10聽K enhanced net power by 1.7...

Abstract Gas turbine (GT) power plants suffer from sensitivity to ambient-air temperature, high fuel consumption, and a high amount of waste heat dumped into the ambient. Various solutions were proposed to solve these drawbacks, which could simultaneously solve at most two problems, usually, at the expense of the third. In this work, however, a novel integration consisting of cascaded solar heat exchangers and a combined cycle power plant CCPP was used to simultaneously address the GTs shortcomi...

In the last stages of steam turbines, the formation of liquid droplets causes losses and reduces turbine efficiency. One of the major problems of wet steam flow is the presence of the liquid phase, which volumetric heating reduces the wetness. One of the disadvantages of adding volumetric heating is increasing entropy generation and cost. Considering that three important parameters, including entropy losses, economic cost, and wetness play, an important role in the turbine blade flow. Reducing w...
