A comparison between power plants built according to the HAT (Humid Air Turbine) and SCGT/CC (Semi-Closed Gas Turbine/Combined Cycle) concepts is presented, ranging from thermodynamic performance (efficiency and specific power output) to projected data for plant construction and operating costs. Both options appear to be of potential interest to electric utilities considering advanced gas turbine power plants, with significant differences form the point of view of plant size, water consumption, and adaptability to advanced developments for the limitation of environmental impact (CO2 emissions).
