In this work, exergetic performance of a gas turbine with two intercoolers and two reheaters has been investigated. Different fuel kinds such as methane, ethane, propane, butane, pentane, hexane, Heptane, Octane, Nonane, Decane, Undecane, Dodecane, Tridecane, Tetradecane, Pentadecane, Hexadecane, Benzene, Toluene, Methanol, Ethanol have been used in the gas turbine to investigate the energetic and exergetic performance. The temperature, pressure, specific enthalpy, specific entropy and specific exergy of each state points have been determined. Also, the net power, exergy destruction and exergy efficiency of the components such as Compressors, Coolers, Reheaters, Turbines, Regenerator, combustor and preheater have been presented.The results showed that the methane has the maximum exergy efficieny and the minimum exergy destruction. However, the methanol has the minimum exergy efficieny and the maximum exergy destruction.
