Increases in electric power demand during the next 30 years will sharply increase water requirements for condenser cooling and will stimulate the search for alternative solutions to the thermal pollution of our waters. Continuing engineering advances, achieved during extensive research and development efforts on military and commercial gas-turbine applications, could provide the basis for substantially improved power plants that could significantly alleviate thermal pollution. The authors describe the results of analytical studies to estimate the design technology, performance, and cost characteristics of future fossil- and nuclear-fueled gas-turbine power generation systems and the potential for eliminating thermal pollution.
