The article investigates the effect of compressor pressure ratio, turbine inlet temperature and ambient temperature on the performance parameters of an air-cooled gas turbine cycle with evaporative cooling of inlet air. Air f ilm cooling has been adopted as the cooling technique for gas turbine blades. The mass of coolant required for turbine blade cooling is calculated f or a selected range of ambient conditions and found to vary with temperature drop achieved in the evaporator. The effect of… CONTINUE READING
