The power output of a gas turbine is increased by vaporizing a liquid coolant fuel at the inlet of the air compressor, which cools the air and increases the mass throughput of the compressor. The method preferably is used in a gas turbine-driven power generation system for increased power output and particularly during periods of high ambient temperatures or at a high site elevation. The liquid coolant fuel also can be introduced simultaneously into the gas turbine combustor to supplement the normal combustor fuel.
[ We claim:] [1.] In the operation of a gas turbine-driven power generation system wherein a stream of feed air is introduced into the inlet of an air compressor, the air is compressed and combusted with synthesis gas containing hydrogen and carbon monoxide in a combustor to generate a hot combustion product gas, and the hot combustion product gas is expanded in a gas turbine expander to generate work which drives the air compressor and an electric generator, the improvement which comprises producing methanol from at least a portion of the synthesis gas ...
