This paper presents a comparative study of first and second law thermodynamic analysis of combined and recuperated and non-recuperated steam injected gas turbine cycles. The analysis has been carried out by developing a computer code, which is based on the modeling of various elements of these cycles. The gas turbine chosen for the analysis is MS9001H developed recently by GE and the steam cycle is having a triple-pressure heat recovery steam generator with reheat. It has been observed that the combined cycle is superior to the steam injected cycle, however, the gap narrows down with increasing compressor pressure ratio and high value of turbine inlet temperature. The detailed exergy losses have been presented in various elements of combined and steam injected cycles.
