Typical of combined plants is their dependence on the performance of the prime mover (gas turbine) powering the cycle on one hand, and the heat recovery steam generators (HRSG's) operating parameters on the other hand. Changes made in the HRSG's operating parameters (i.e., pinch point, approach temperature, first and second stage pressures, and mass ratios) can greatly affect the HRSG performance and will eventually affect the overall combined plant performance. Analysis of such combined plants at various operating conditions is with no doubt a tedious and time consuming job. The purpose of this paper to introduce the development of a computer program to study the performance of the overall combined plant at various atmospheric and loading conditions. The program uses a fully interactive approach and should be most helpful in monitoring changes in the plant performance, if any of the operating parameters is varied.
