Improvements to computer models and design methods for gas turbine inlet ducts have the potential to improve efficiency by as much as 0.5%, according to research from the Amirkabir University of Technology and Isfahan University of Technology in Iran. "The efficiency of diffusers of gas turbines could be improved up to 5% by using this method. This improvement could then increase the efficiency of gas
turbine cycle up to 0.5%," Ali Madadi, a member of this research team on the project told Gas Power Technology Journal.
