Inner workings of a combined cycle power plant a combined cycle power plant uses both a gas and a steam turbine together to produce up to 50 percent more electricity from the same fuel than a traditional simple cycle plant the waste heat from the gas turbine is routed to the nearby steam turbine which generates extra power. Combined cycle gas steam turbine power plants 3rd edition is a comprehensive overview of the combined cycle power plant from a thermodynamic technical and economic viewpoint this new edition gives readers the latest technological developments and practical examples from existing state of the art combined cycle plants. A larger steam turbine also allows the use of higher pressures and results in a more efficient steam cycle thus the overall plant size and the associated number of gas turbines required have a major impact on whether a single shaft combined cycle power plant or a multiple shaft combined cycle power plant is more economical. Combined gas and steam cogas is the name given to marine compound powerplants comprising gas and steam turbines the latter being driven by steam generated using the heat from the exhaust of the gas turbinesin this way some of the otherwise lost energy can be reclaimed and the specific fuel consumption of the plant can be decreased large land based electric powerplants built using this . The combined cycle power plant or combined cycle gas turbine a gas turbine generator generates electricity and waste heat is used to make steam to generate additional electricity via a steam turbine an overview of combined cycle power plant photo credit businesswirecom the gas turbine is one
