The Cheng-Cycle turbine engine is a superheated steam injected gas turbine cycle system. This work is based on the Garrett 831 gas turbine. The development effort involved the design and manufacture of an experimental heat recovery steam generator, a steam injection system, and system controls. Measured performance data indicate the 26 percent efficiency improvement has been obtained compared to that of the basic turbine engine at its continuous power rating.
