Aiming at the rapid mobility of marine gas turbine and the dynamic time-delay problem of intercooler for intercooled cycle marine gas turbine, the dynamic simulation model of intercooler was set up based on effectiveness-number of transfer units ( ε -NTU) and lumped parameter method in this paper. The model comprehensively considers related physical properties dependent on temperature. Dynamic response characteristics of gas outlet temperature and pressure and coolant outlet temperature of intercooler with different materials and coolants in the change of operation condition of marine gas turbine were analyzed in detail. Besides, this paper explored the use of simulated annealing algorithm for structural optimization of intercooler. The results showed that both material and coolant were the significant factors that affected the heat transfer and dynamic performance of intercooler. The heat transfer and dynamic performance of the intercooler obtained by using simulated annealing algorithm were better than those of preliminary design.
