Innovative inlet air cooling technology for gas turbine power plants using integrated solid desiccant and Maisotsenko cooler
Gas turbine thermal efficiency has significant dependency on climatic conditions. Evaporative cooling is commonly utilized as an inlet air cooling technique in hot and dry climates though an increase in atmospheric humidity ...
Performance assessment and transient optimization of air precooling in multi-stage solid desiccant air conditioning systems
Renewable energy is one of the most promising solutions to both energy and global warming crisis. Energy consumption can be minimized considerably by utilizing solar energy in air conditioning systems operation. One of the ...
Analysis of Maisotsenko open gas turbine power cycle with a detailed air saturator model
With ever increasing cost of fossil fuels and natural gas, the improvement in gas turbine power cycle efficiency is needed due to the tremendous savings in fuel consumption. Water/steam injection is considered as one of ...
Thermo-economic and comparative analyses of two recently proposed optimization approaches for circular heliostat fields: Campo radial-staggered and biomimetic spiral
In this paper, comparative analyses between two newly proposed circular heliostat field layout designs, i.e. Campo radial-staggered and biomimetic spiral layouts are carried out. Moreover, different optimization objectives ...
