This paper introduces and provides a first order thermal cycle analysis of a new power plant design, the absorption-regeneration power cycle. Preliminary analysis indicates that this new cycle may have potential for increased operating efficiencies compared to the modified Rankine cycle presently in use for most stationary electrical power production. Graphs are presented to illustrate calculated efficiencies as well as some important design parameters of the cycle. Research work on extending presently available thermo-chemical data required to improve the model analysis is suggested.
