This study deals with modeling and simulation of the transient behavior of an Industrial Power Plant Gas Turbine (IPGT). The data used for model setup and validation were taken experimentally during the start-up procedure of a single-shaft heavy duty gas turbine. Two different models are developed and compared by using both a physics-based and a black-box approach, and are implemented by using the matlab© tools including Simulink and Neural Network toolbox, respectively. The Simulink model was constructed based on the thermodynamic and energy balance equations in matlab environment. The nonlinear autoregressive with exogenous inputs NARX model was set up by using the same data sets and subsequently applied to each of the data sets separately. The results showed that both Simulink and NARX models are capable of satisfactory prediction, if it is considered that the data used for model training and validation is experimental data taken during gas turbine normal operation by using its standard instrumentation.
