Abstract:

The addition of helium to various gases utilized as working bodies of closed gas turbine installations, allows for a decrease of the value of heat exchange surfaces. The efficiency in this case falls considerably less than with an increase in the temperature pressure heads. 2 The use as working bodies of mixtures of some gases with helium and hydrogen which, in principle will make it possible to create a closed gas turbine installations which will simultaneously have a higher efficiency and a lower value of sizes of heat exchange surfaces than when using pure gases, is advisable.
