Another great article from Power Engineering:
“Innovation in Turbine Inlet Conditioning” from TIC and GE.
(October 2010, starting on page 51)
The article outlines an option to use absorption chillers instead of mechanical chillers for gas turbine inlet cooling. Using the GT exhaust gas energy as input to run the chillers – there is no (or very minimal) aux load requirement to run the chillers.
Sounds like a great idea to me!!
