In this paper, a calculation code developed by DIEM – University of Bologna, able to evaluate the performance of a gas turbine with all possible fogging strategies (high pressure fogging, overspray and interstage injection) is presented and discussed. The aim of the developed calculation code is to overcome the calculation limits of the most widespread commercial software, specially with regards to the two phase flow compression process simulation. The self developed calculation code was validated on results available in literature. The developed code is standard, and can be applied to evaluate the performance of any commercial gas turbine model.
