DESIGN AND OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF A COMBINED CYCLE MARINE POWERPLANT
The design and operational characteristics of a 43,000-shp combined gas turbine and steam turbine marine power plant, 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%. It is the intent of this paper to show that this low fuel rate design can be achieved with simplicity, operational flexibility, and minimum environmental effect.
