The paper considers the closed-cycle gas turbine plant from the educational aspect of knowledge and understanding. The special qualitative features of the T-s diagram are discussed and a quantitative treatment of a simple model presented. A new expression for the maximum efficiency is given and interesting aspects of the results discussed. Technical and educational conclusions are drawn from the work.
