State advantages of closed cycle gas turbine.
Advantages of closed cycle gas turbine:
(i) It has higher thermal efficiency for the same minimum and maximum temperature limits and for the same pressure ratio.
(ii) Since the heating is external, any kind of fuel even solid fuel having low calorific value may be used.
(iii) There is no corrosion due to circulation of combustion product.
(iv) As the system is a closed one there is no loss of the working fluid.
(v) The size of the turbine will be smaller compared to an open cycle gas turbine of the same output.
(vi) The regulation is more simple.
(vii) The heat transmission coefficient in the exchanger is better due to the increase in suction pressure.
(viii) Loss due to fluid friction is less due to higher Reynolds number.
