In this work, thermodynamic optimization of reheat gas turbine cycles (without intercooling and recuperative heat exchange) combined with bottoming cycles, is done. Thermodynamic conditions ensuring the combined cycle engine maximal specific work and thermal efficiency are formulated for a general case of arbitrary number of reheat stages with different inlet gas temperatures and isentropic efficiencies.

Parametric analyses show that application of reheat cycles brings significant improvement of gas turbine and combined cycle specific work and efficiency in comparison with a case of a simple cycle gas turbine.
