This Paper describes the efforts implemented in performance enhancements of CGT, Frame No7, Model EA. The CGT is operating in Watson Cogeneration Company (WCC), Carson, California, USA. The better-than-expected improvements were achieved after MI of CGT Unit 4, in October 2004. The significant increase in CGT power and simultaneous reduction in HR was obtained by introduction of OEM-improved design details, by increasing FT from 2,020 degrees F to 2,055 degrees F and also by reduction of parasitic, internal to CGT, losses.
