Abstract [en]

Gas turbines with air-water mixtures as the working fluid promise high electrical efficiencies and high specific power outputs to specific investment costs below that of combined cycles. Different humidified gas turbine cycles have been proposed, for example direct water-injected cycles, steam-injected cycles and evaporative cycles with humidification towers. However, only a few of these cycles have been implemented and even fewer are available commercially. This paper comprehensively reviews the literature on research and development on humidified gas turbines and identifies the cycles with the largest potential for the future. In addition, the remaining development work required for implementing the various humidified gas turbine cycles is discussed. This paper can also be used as a reference source that summarizes the research and development activities on humidified gas turbines in the last three decades.
