Dynamic analysis of wet mGTs

Background

Aim of the project is the study of wet cycles, not only in distributed CHP applications, but also in large scale power generation. Numerous steady-state thermodynamic studies of wet cycles demonstrated an increase of electrical efficiency, when steam injection is applied.

The focus of this thesis is the development of a numerical model for transient operation of wet micro gas turbine cycles.

 

Aims and tasks

 

  • A validated model of the dry mGT in Aspen Plus Dynamics shall be extended for wet operation.
  • The models will be used to evaluate the operation of the mGTs in two case studies with real heat and electricity demand.
  • The influence of transients on the economics of the mGT will be studied.

Requirements

 

  • Experience with Aspen plus and/or Aspen Plus dynamics.
  • Experience with Matlab and Simulink programming.
  • Basic knowledge of gas turbine theory.
