Thesis: Lifetime efficiency improvement of gas turbine power generation offshore

I will design a gas turbine power generation system that could handle load changes efficiently offshore. This will reduce CO2 emission and fuel consumption. This is important because gas turbines are expected to work mostly at inefficient part loads due to availability patterns of renewable energies. The design will be compatible with modern carbon capture and storage systems and hydrogen-base fuels requirements. I will develop a design methodology for future intermittent load gas turbines offshore. Then I will develop an inhouse modelling software for power generation offshore and assess the potential solutions through it.
