Potential Performance of Gas Turbine Powerplants 650715

The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the performance potential of industrial and marine gas turbines. The power-plants considered here include various open cycles with inter-cooling, regeneration, and/or reheat. The concept “flow path efficiency” is used to evaluate trends in the aerodynamic efficiency of previous gas turbines. The results show that additional important advances in the performance of gas turbines can be expected, primarily as a result of higher operating temperatures.
