Combustion turbines are mass-flow engines. Power output increases within limits, in inverse proportion to the temperature of the inlet air. Cooler air is denser and consequently provides more mass flow. According tot he manufacturer, output will typically increase by 10% to 18% for every 20°F of reduction in inlet air temperature. This system is designed to be an inexpensive, low maintenance and hassle-free alternative to chillers or media type evaporative coolers. Due to the high evaporative efficiency of water fog, the system can also be used to supplement chillers or media type evaporative coolers.
