The use of advanced cycles to take advantage of the gas turbine’s thermodynamic characteristics has received increasing attention in recent years. These cycles have been developed for large scale power generation. Due to the powerful abilities of bio-inspired computing techniques such as Genetic Algorithm in locating the optimal (or near optimal) solutions to a given optimization problem, they are widely utilized for determining the parameters of different engineering systems in order to meet the specified performance objectives for a given problem. In order to illustrate the performance of one of these techniques, development and application of it for an engineering problem is presented. In this paper a regenerative gas turbine cycle, with isothermal heat addition has been analyzed. The optimization of system has been carried out numerically using the Genetic Algorithm method. Results show that the regenerative gas turbine engine, with isothermal heat addition, designed according to the optimum parameters condition gives the best performance and exhibits highest cycle efficiencies.
