The strong influence of ambient temperature on the output and heat rate of a gas turbine has popularized the application of inlet fogging and overspray for power augmentation. This paper focuses on practical considerations, for implementation of fogging technology, such as water quality requirements, foreign object damage, gas turbine inlet icing, intake duct design, changes in compressor performance characteristics, and blade coating distress problems. It also provides a checklist for users and project developers to facilitate the design and implementation of fogging systems. In addition, this paper covers operational experience and reviews the work pursued by gas turbine OEMs in the field of fogging technology. A list of unresolved issues and ongoing research related to the fogging technology is also provided.
