Jupiter, FL (October 1, 2014) – The Turbophase installation at Morris Cogeneration was featured in Power Magazine’s October 2014 issue. The title was was: “Quickly Boost Your Combustion Turbine Response.”
Here is an excerpt from the article:
“What do the OEMs think about an owner adding compressed air into the engine casing for peaking power or fast regulation purposes? General Electric’s GER-3567H states, ‘GE [heavy duty] gas turbines are designed to allow up to 5% of the compressor airflow for steam injection to the combustor and compressor discharge.’ If superheated steam injection is acceptable to GE, as it has been for over 30 years, then one would expect that compressed air in like mass flow will also be acceptable. Also, it seems to me that injecting clean compressed air upstream of the combustor is certainly preferable to wet compression resulting from the use of evaporative coolers.”
