How TIAC Works

Turbine Inlet Air Chilling is most compelling in warm climates when power output from gas turbines decreases but demand is highest because of air-conditioning requirements. Gas turbine power plants are generally designed to produce rated output at 60° Fahrenheit and operate more efficiently when the ambient (inlet) temperature is low. Lower inlet air temperatures significantly increase power production and improve power plant efficiency during periods of warm weather.  

TIAC is an electro-mechanical system comprised of chillers, pumps, heat rejection equipment, piping, controls and heat transfer equipment.  Chilled water (or brine) is delivered to a heat transfer device. The air entering into the gas turbine filter house is cooled as it passes through the heat transfer device. The cooled air then flows into the gas turbine and increases the power production and improves power plant efficiency.
