EFFICIENCY CONSIDERATIONS FOR FUTURE MARINE GAS TURBINES

Navy programs for development of advanced gas turbines for marine use based on modifications and adaptations of aircraft gas turbines are reviewed. Means for improvement in efficiency by use of regeneration, steam-water injection, closed Brayton cycle, waste heat and bottoming cycles are discussed. A limited economic study evaluates the effectiveness of each cycle when applied to the DD 963.
