TECHNICAL AND ECONOMICAL FEASIBILITY OF GAS TURBINE INLET COOLING USING EVAPORATIVE FOGGING SYSTEM IN TWO DIFFERENT LOCATIONS IN OMAN

Zurigat, Yousef H.

In this paper gas turbine power boost via inlet air evaporative fogging system is evaluated for power plants of 40 MW power output in two different locations in Sultanate of Oman. The cooling effect is quantified using evaporative cooling degree hour (ECDH) approach. The power output boost based on the month with the highest number of evaporative cooling degree hours reaches as high as 20% for both locations.. This is significant in view of the increased air conditioning load during summer months. It is found that the average net present value (NPV) of installing fogging system in Marmul is $4,622,018 and in Fahud is $6,182,496. It is also found that the purchase and installation costs are paid back within the first six months of system operation and for later years, annual revenue of over $500,000 is generated.
