This paper discusses the combined gas and steam turbine system using second generation gas turbines with the purpose of analyzing the advantages of such a plant for U.S. Navy use. The discussion begins with the general criteria for Navy machinery development followed by target goals for design of a Navy propulsion plant. Results of a recent feasibility study of a compact COGAS plant for destroyer use, including plant description and performance analysis are presented. The impact of such a plant on the ship design of a typical destroyer is compared with the target goals discussed earlier. Finally, the reasons why such a plant should be considered for development by the Navy are summarized, showing how the COGAS plant fulfills Navy machinery development objectives. (Authors)
