Greater use is being made of dynamic simulation of energy systems as a design tool for selecting control strategies and establishing operating procedures. This paper discusses the dynamic modeling of a gas-fired combined-cycle power plant with a gas turbine, a steam turbine, and an alternator—all rotating on a common shaft. A waste-heat boiler produces steam at two pressures using heat from the gas turbine flue gas. The transient behavior of the system predicted by the model for various upset situations appears physically reasonable and satisfactory for the operating constraints.
