A method and apparatus for power augmentation in gas turbine cycles is provided that efficiently provides at least air and preferably both steam and air injection. In an embodiment of the invention, an air injection compressor is driven with steam used for gas turbine injection prior to its injection into the gas turbine. In addition to power output, the thermodynamic efficiency is improved in simple cycle turbine power plants with the disclosed method and apparatus.
1. A gas turbine cycle comprising:a gas turbine system including a compressor for compressing air, a combustion system for receiving compressed air from the compressor and a gas turbine for converting the energy of the combustion mixture that leaves the combustion system into work; a heat recovery system for receiving exhaust gas from the gas turbine; a steam turbine; a first flow path for at least one of water and steam at elevated pressure including a first heat exchange flow path disposed in heat exchange relation to said exhaust gas flowing through s...
