Techno-economic study on the waste heat recovery options for wet cooled natural gas combined cycle power plants, A
Increasing ambient temperature is known to have negative impacts on the performance of gas turbine and combined cycle power plants. There have been multiple approaches to mitigate this performance reduction. One such method involves cooling of the gas turbine inlet air. There are several different commercial techniques available, but they are energy intensive and require large capital investments. One potential option for cost reduction is to recover the waste heat emanating from the power plants to operate thermally activated cooling systems to cool the turbine inlet air. In this study, a 565 ...
