Abstract

In this paper a method to improve gas-turbine performance and participation in primary frequency control of autonomous power systems is presented. In particular, a gasturbine model incorporating a compressed-air chamber is developed. It is shown that a significant improvement in
primary frequency control can be obtained, as well as a temporary power increase in order to respond to loads above the plant nominal power without overheating.
