Combined cycle power plants and cogeneration plants all over the world require detailed specifications both from a performance as well as a mechanical point of view. The first decision is what type of combined cycle power plant should be built. Combined cycle plants are generally configured with each gas turbine and steam turbine driving a separate electrical generator. Since the two generators are on separate shafts, this configuration is called a multi-shaft combined cycle power plant. The term single-shaft combined cycle power plant refers to a configuration in which the gas turbine and steam turbine drive a single, common generator,...
