Mathematical model of Combined Heat and Power Plant using GateCycleTM software

Cezary Kowalczyk, Radosław Mateusz Rolf, Bartosz Kowalczyk, Krzysztof Badyda


The This paper contains a description and analysis of a mathematical model of the combined cycle gas turbine used
by Lublin–Wrotków Combined Heat and Power Plant. The model was generated with the GE Energy GateCycleTM
software and was based on the parametric design of the real power plant. A brief description of the technology used
in the power plant is included in this work. The model was validated by comparing the generated results with the
parametric design. The paper finishes with an analysis of the work of the District Water Heater and summary of the
most important findings.
