Steam injected gas turbine
Steam injected gas turbine: Principle
The main principle is that the steam used for injection is produced from fresh water in aHRSG by cooling the hot exhaust gases from the gas turbine.
The steam is then supplied before or in the combustion chamber or at the turbine inlet.If it is an industrial gas turbine, some steam is also brought to an industrial process.
The flue gases and steam expand in the turbine and thereafter heat new water.
The steam/flue gas mix is then transported to the stack.
Possibly flue gas condensing can be used in order to recover some of the water fromthe flue gases and to produce district heating.
