Gas Turbine Power Augmentation in a Cogeneration Plant using inlet air chilling is investigated. Options include absorption chillers, mechanical (electric driven) chillers, thermal energy storage. Motive energy for the chillers is steam from the gas turbine exhaust or electrical energy for mechanical chillers. Chilled water distribution in the inlet air system is described. Overall economics of the power augmentation benefits is investigated.
