In view of the high cost of fuel today, Marine Propulsion Plant designers should re-evaluate more sophisticated cycles to obtain better overall economy. Part of this evaluation should include a study of non-reheat cycles utilizing efficient large frame non-reheat turbines. This paper gives the capability of one manufacturer's frame sizes for higher powers and suggests maximum utilization of non-reheat cycles including higher inlet conditions and the use of the gas air heater as a viable alternative to reheat. The proper sizing of the LP turbine and its effect on fuel rate is emphasized.
