Abstract

Combined cycle power plants have high efficiencies and they require comparatively lower investment costs than other technologies. These plants use a gas turbine and a steam turbine to generate electricity (Ordys et al., 1994). As shown in Figure 5.1, turbines are combined into one cycle where the energy is transferred from one turbine to the other. The exhaust gases from the gas turbine are used to provide the necessary heat for the steam production in the boiler. This steam is fed to the steam turbine.
