Effects of Water and Steam Injection on Thermodynamic Performance of Gas-Turbine Systems
The water and steam injection gas-turbine systems are comparatively investigated. Thermodynamic performances of the regenerative after-fogging gas-turbine (RAF) system, steam-injection gas-turbine (STIG) system, and the regenerative steam-injection gas-turbine (RSTIG) system are analyzed parametrically. Using the analytic model, the important system variables such as thermal efficiency, fuel consumption, specific power, and specific emission of CO2 gas are evaluated in terms of pressure ratio and water or steam injection ratio. The numerical results show that water or steam injection results in a notable enhancement of thermal efficiency and specific power.
