Title: Reheat gas turbine combined with steam turbine

Abstract

A process and apparatus for generating useful power comprises the use of a combined reheat gas turbine and steam turbine cycle. The combined cycle optionally includes the superheating of steam and the reheating of steam in the reheat combustor of the reheat gas turbine. The use of second generation high pressure-ratio, high-firing temperature gas generators in the combined cycle of the present invention yields increased efficiency and output heretofore unexpected from reheat gas and combined cycles.
