Gas Turbine Performance

  1. Apr 18, 2017 #1
    Hey Mech Eng Forum, I'm currently examining the performance on gas turbine and wondering:

    How is the performance of gas turbines (Primarily thermal efficiency and net-work output) influenced by the pressure ratio and temperature constraints? Additionally, what is the benefit of 2 stage compression with intercooling?

    Thanks!

    BTW, this sounds a bit like a schoolwork problem. What is the context of your questions? And what reading have you done on this subject so far? Can you post links to that reading?
