To meet peaking power demands the E.W. Brown Station, owned and operated by Kentucky Utilities Company, was extended by two GT24 gas turbines. The project had to meet a 9-month engineering, construction and commissioning schedule. The conceptual design is based on ABB ALSTOM POWER’S reference plant design for combined cycle application. It was adjusted to the requirements of a simple cycle operation.

Special plant features such as evaporative cooling of the inlet air, system design of the evaporative cooling system, performance and experience will be discussed in detail. The plant has an aggressive running and starting reliability goal; the approach to meet the required plant reliability will be discussed below. The initial operational feedback will be addressed as well as an outlook on how to meet all project goals.
