Abstract:
It has been shown that the ideal fuel burning engine, which is named the Wicks Cycle, can be implemented as a three process gas turbine cycle consisting of isothermal compression, heat addition and reversible adiabatic expansion to the ambient temperature as well as ambient pressure. However, such a cycle operating at typical fuel combustion temperatures requires excessive pressure ratios. This paper examines whether such a cycle, or a gas turbine cycle with compressor intercooling, may be a realistic bottoming cycle in a combined cycle plant, as an alternative to either existing practice steam cycles or to the proposed alternative Kalina Cycle.
