The present work deals with the parametric energy analysis of humidified air turbine (HAT) cycles, identifying the best plant arrangement and predicting the influence of operating parameters on plant performance. In predicting performance plant optimization is to be achieved for an overall pressure ratio. The results presented will be helpful to designers to select the best configurations and optimum operating parameters. The best configuration among the chosen configurations is the one in which there are three intercoolers and two aftercoolers.
