Gas turbines are among the most popular technologies for power generation today. Since fuel burns inside a turbine, hot gases are released as a result. A very high inlet temperature can damage the components inside a turbine. Hence, it is important to keep the inlet temperature bounded. On the other hand, the push for high efficiency, low-emission machines by the market has resulted in the introduction of new process for gas turbines such as reheat. In this paper, we analyse the effect of reheat on a gas turbine with high inlet temperature.
