Abstract

A hybrid gas turbine cycle, Braysson cycle, has been recently proposed in the literature based on the conventional Brayton topping cycle while adopting the Ericsson cycle as the bottoming one. In this article thermodynamic analyses and sensitivity studies have been carried out employing an intelligent computer-aided instruction (CAI) software for power and energy systems design and analysis. Salient features and capabilities of the CAI tool have been discussed as well to extend assistance to the prospective users. Such tools can be effective means for conducting initial research studies on advanced novel cycles that are being suggested by researchers.
