There exists a widespread interest 111 the application of gas turbine Power Augmentation Technologies (PATs) in both electric power generation and mechanical drive markets.

In the Part II of this study, an analytical evaluation of the ambient temperature effect on gas turbines performance is presented.

Abstract

There exists a widespread interest 111 the application of gas turbine Power Augmentation Technologies (PATs) in both electric power generation and mechanical drive markets. Tins interest is attributable to liberalization in the power generation sector, increased electric rates during peak demand period and need for a proper selection of the gas turbine in a given application. In the Part II of this study, an analytical evaluation of the ambient temperature effect on gas turbines performance is presented. Further, the achievable power boost due to the installation of the most adopted PAT strategies is deeply investigated. Considering a whole year of operation for a large number of worldwide locations, also the behavior change - due to the use of the PATs - on both the energy production and the economic aspect will be analyzed and discussed.
