THE DESIGN AND OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF A COMBINED CYCLE MARINE POWER PLANT

Presented are the design and operational characteristics of a 43,000-shp combined gas turbine and steam turbine marine powerplant, known as COGAS. Based upon the "second generation technology" FT4C-2 marine gas turbine, the combined cycle fuel rate is 0.363 lb/shp-hr which represents a thermal efficiency of 41 percent. It is shown that this low fuel rate design can be achieved with simplicity, operational flexibility, and minimum environmental effect.
