Underground air storage and gas turbines are combined to form an air-storage power plant for peak power generation. This generating system will lower the peak power generation cost at the time when the fuel price is high. The paper is intended to present thermodynamic analysis of various cycle arrangements. The air storage is of constant pressure type. In the paper, the parameters affecting the system performance characteristics are identified and studied. Also included are the effects of intercoolers and recuperators. The storage volume is predicted in terms of unit peaking power production.
