Although there is tremendous interest in the gas turbine and it has become a fully recognized prime mover, there have been relatively little data collected in one paper which would aid in evaluating various gas turbine cycles. This paper presents estimating cost data which can be used for preliminary evaluations and discusses factors, unique with the gas turbine, which should be considered. Although well known, two of the common methods of evaluating power plants are discussed with particular reference to gas turbines.
