GREATER SHIP CAPABILITY AND ENERGY SAVING WITH COMBINED CYCLE MACHINERY

The gas turbine cycle receives heat at a relatively high temperature, but rejects it at a temperature well above ambient. Utilizing this rejected heat in a steam cycle, which is inherently a lower temperature device, provides a combined cycle with markedly high efficiency than that obtainable by either of its components. Advances in gas turbine reliability, and application of well-proven gas turbine design principles to steam turbines of powers used in ships, makes practicable highly efficient, compact and reliable marine prime movers utilizing the combined cycle. Use of a modern dual-pressure once-through boiler provides further significant advantages of military and economic importance.
