While efficiency is still the major driver in combined-cycle power plant design, there is an increasing need for operational flexibility along with additional operating cost reduction. Nightly and weekend shutdowns and subsequent start-up capabilities should be considered during the overall evaluation of a power plant. Technological advancements in power plant design involving gas and steam turbines, heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs), generators and comprehensive plant component…
