Today’s competitive world of Independent Power Producers and electric wheeling has increased demand for lower operating and maintenance costs and increased revenues. This need is driving gas turbine research and development. Application of advanced technology to operating units can increase output, improve total plant efficiency, increase steam production and reduce maintenance costs. Cogen Technologies is one owner that has applied advanced technology to uprate five Frame 7EA gas turbines at its Linden plant and one unit at its Camden facility. At the Linden plant, total plant efficiency was improved by more than 2%.

This paper will discuss the components included in these advanced technology uprates, the gas turbine and combined-cycle plant performance improvements that were realized, and an economic model that can be used to evaluate the potential benefits of an uprate.
