Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

There is a large amount of heat energy available in the exhaust of a gas turbine, and this can be recovered in a heat recovery steam generator to produce additional power to the propulsion system or to electrical power. This concept is known as COGAS; that is, combined gas turbine and steam turbine. When used in a propulsion system, a COGAS plant has to satisfy the requirements of ship propulsion under all possible operating conditions. The performance of a COGAS system, particularly the gas turbine cycle, varies with the atmospheric conditions such as temperature, pressure and relative humidity. A dynamic analysis of COGAS propulsion plants is useful for predicting system performance and providing guidance for system design. The codes for the simulation performed in this study are developed with MATLAB/Simulink. This paper presents a dynamic simulation of a COGAS propulsion system with MATLAB/Simulink. Results of the simulation are discussed and presented in the paper.
