Increasing the Efficiency of Gas Turbine Plant “Aquarius” Due to the Air Cooling in Compressor

We analyze the contact air cooling application method for gas-and-steam turbine technology “Aquarius” (GSTT “Aquarius”). We utilize the real GSTT “Aquarius” characteristics (capacity 16 MW) for calculations. We demonstrate the capacity of implementing the gas turbine engine air cooling process using superheated water. Using the oversaturated water, we elaborate the air cooling process in the adapter between the compressor of low pressure and the compressor of high pressure.
