An attempt is made to utilize exhaust gases of a small gas turbine in augmenting power output through the employment of a thermoacoustic system. It is assumed that the thermoacoustic system is powered only by the waste heat of the gas turbine. A comprehensive cycle analysis of the integrated gas turbine thermoacoustic engine “IGTTE” is carried out from energy and exergy point of view. Results indicate the thermodynamic advantages of the IGTTE.
