Two-stage Gas turbine unite (GTU) inlet air cooling by absorption lithium-bromide chiller (ACh) to the temperature 15 °C and by refrigerant ejector chiller (ECh) to 10 °C through utilizing the turbine exhaust gas heat for changeable ambient air temperatures and corresponding heat loads on the air coolers for the south Ukraine climatic conditions is analysed. An excessive refrigeration capacity of combined absorption-ejector chiller (AECh) exceeding the current heat loads and generated at decreased heat loads on the air coolers at the inlet of GTU can be used for covering increased heat loads to reduce the refrigeration capacity of AECh. The GTU inlet air cooling system with an ambient air precooling booster stage and a base two-stage cooling air to the temperature 10 °C by AECh is proposed. The AECh excessive cooling capacity generated during decreased heat loads on the GTU inlet air coolers is conserved in the thermal accumulator and used for GTU inlet air precooling in a booster stage of air cooler during increased heat loads. There is AECh cooling capacity reduction by 50% due to the use of a booster stage for precooling GTU inlet ambient air at the expense of an excessive cooling capacity accumulated in the thermal storage.
