Abstract


The heat lost from gas turbine power plants with exhaust gases represents the most important source for lowering its thermal efficiency. Also, the thermal efficiency of gas turbine can be affected significantly by the ambient surrounding temperature. In Basrah, a lot of gas turbine units have been installed during the last period. In this study, the thermal-economic impact of the heat lost from gas turbine power plant (GTPP) to the atmosphere for different ambient temperature is studied. Heat recovery system is used, the heat recovery system is an absorption refrigeration system used for cooling the air inlet to the gas turbine cycle. For combined system gas turbine-refrigeration cycle, the performance and economic analysis are performed. The results shows that as, the output power and thermal efficiency are decreased by 0.97 MW and 0.0726% respectively for each unit temperature rise of the ambient temperature. The used of the absorption chiller would increase the output power by 23.3%. Also, the thermal efficiency increased by 23.35%.
