At our Turbo Expo'14 last June in Dusseldorf, IGTI author Hans Wettstein presented a paper proposing a thermodynamic cycle with a supercharged gas turbine , Along with the promise of higher efficiencies over a wide range of loads, supercharging would provide more power to a gas turbine of a given size, just as it does for Diesel and Otto engines
. One 400 MW supercharged gas turbine power plant variant analyzed by Wettstein yielded a predicted thermal efficiency of 60%, rivaling current combined cycle values.
