Turbine Inlet Chilling (TIC) is a straight forward solution to cool the inlet air for a gas turbine to maximize the turbine output across ambient conditions. This system can use water or forced air as the form of cooling. The addition of a Thermal Energy Storage (TES) tank to the chilling system can enhance performance and decrease operating costs for systems that have natural daily or weekly cycling rhythms.  Chilled water can be stored at low demand times and then used during the high demand times to maximize power available when most needed.
