Optimization of Solar Integration in Combined Cycle Gas Turbines (ISCC)
The estimation of the optimum number of loops to operate an integrated solar combined cycle gas turbine (ISCC) represents a complex problem and a very time demanding operation, which must be calculated in near-real time and as a result, it is hardly possible to be solved with regular ISCC production models. This problem is addressed evaluating different soft computing techniques, concluding that the BAG-REPT metamodel fits best generating MAE test of 4.19% and RMSE test of 8.75%. This model presents much lower time than regular ISCC production models and might be used as a decision tool for feasibility assessments and also in pre-design stages of new ISCC projects.
