AARP for Gas Turbine Inlet Air Cooling
Offered By Division T2

  • It is well known that output and efficiency of Gas Turbines is highly sensitive to inlet combustion air temperature. Following are typical outputs and efficiencies.
    Gas Turbine Combustion Air Inlet
    Temperature
    Gas Turbine Efficiency % Power Output from Gas Turbine
    4°C 31 105%
    15°C 30 100%
    30°C 29 79%
    45°C 27 70%
  • Various methods are, therefore, used for cooling inlet air temperatures e.g.
    • Water fog based evaporative Cooling.
    • Water cooled LiBr Absorption Chiller based Cooling.
    • Air cooled AARP for Gas Turbine Inlet Air Cooling.
  • It reduces net CO2 emissions.
  • In areas where water is not available, air cooled AARP for Gas Turbine Inlet Air Cooling working on exhaust heat of Gas turbine is an automatic choice and an ideal solution for gas turbine inlet air cooling. AARP for Gas Turbine Inlet Air Cooling can also have a two stage design to utilize very low grade heat.
