Optimization of Advanced Cycle Gas Turbine Intercooler Structure Based on Genetic Algorithm
As an important component of intercooled cycle gas turbine, intercooler directly affects the ratio power, thermal efficiency and various situation quality of gas turbine system. In this paper, efficiency-heat transfer units were used for the design of intercooler, and the structure parameters were optimized by genetic algorithm. The optimization results show that under the condition of required heat load and allowable pressure drop, the heat exchanger can be guaranteed as the smaller weight and the larger heat transfer efficiency, which can offer reference for the design of the actual intercooler.
