In the present work the effect of steam injection in the gas turbine combustion chamber is investigated on gas turbine and steam turbine work output and on thermal efficiency of the combined cycle power plant. The operating conditions investigated include gas turbine pressure ratio and gas turbine inlet temperature. The steam injection decreases the steam cycle output and boosts the gas cycle output and the net combined cycle work output and thermal efficiency significantly.
