This 2-hour online course identifies and describes several methods of enhancing the performance of gas turbines (aka combustion turbines, or GTGs). By enhancing the performance, we mean increasing power output and /or improving the efficiency. The enhancements are described in terms of the hardware that can be included in the design or added as retrofits. Derivations of formulas are avoided, and while the bases of the enhancements are explained, this course does not delve very deeply into thermodynamics.
