This paper outlines the results of the evaluation of the most thermally stressed gas turbine elements, first stage power turbine blades, cooling efficiency. The calculations were implemented using a numerical simulation based on the Finite Element Method. The volume average temperature of the blade and the coefficient of heat transfer from the cooling medium to the cooling channel wall were chosen as the cooling efficiency criteria. A comparison of steam and air used as coolants was done, and the calculations were performed using ANSYS Fluent software.
