Five closed-cycle gas turbine cogeneration plants have been built and commissioned in the Federal Republic of Germany. In all cases the working fluid was air. The facilities were designed as cogeneration plants to supply electricity as well as heat to electrical and heating networks. Each of the plants accumulated more than 100,000 operating hours. One of them, which has exceeded 160,000 hours of operation, is still working. An account has already been given of the experience with the air heaters of these plants, which were fired with coal, oil, gas, or combinations of these. This paper records the experience obtained with the turbo sets.
