Fuel economy and pollution reduction are becoming more and more important issues from year to year. Companies and governments with practically unlimited resources are heavily investing in heat recovery technologies, struggling for every percent of efficiency. The Maisotsenko power cycle (M-power cycle) is one of the most promising heat recovery technologies to solve these problems. This paper includes the concept of M-power cycle for turbine engines through the Idalex humidifying air recuperator and validation of M-power cycle benefits based on the heat and mass exchanger test results and data from the HAT cycle. Provided analysis confirms the M-cycle's unique heat recovery capabilities and indicates that the thermodynamic efficiency of a turbine engine utilizing an M-power cycle could reach 80%, significantly higher than the efficiency of Brayton engines and even combining cycles.
