Title: The Power of Flexibility: Turbine Inlet Air Chilling Benefits

Gas turbines are constant volume air intake machines; consequently, air mass flow and resultant power output fall as ambient temperatures rise and air density falls. The purpose of Turbine Inlet Air Chilling (TIAC) is to restore the power output of a combustion turbine at elevated ambient temperatures to its rated capacity or better. As the critical 'operating system' of the TIAC enhancement, the control technology also plays an integral role in maximizing operational flexibility.
