Analysis and Modeling of a Combined Cycle Power Plant Using Graph Theory
Author Name : Rahul, Raj Kumar
ABSTRACT Graph theory is a well established tool for the analysis of any system. For the graph theory system has to be divided in to sub systems and factors have to be identified for the analysis. In the present work some of the attributes are identified for the application of graph theory. A proper identification of the attributes helps in precise evaluation of selection of combined cycle power plant systems. As the number of attributes increases, the performance characteristics of such systems are represent precisely and the selection of gas turbine system becomes more reliable. However, with increase in number of attributes, usage of dedicated computer programs becomes more indispensable for efficient evaluation and selection of combined cycle power plant systems. Generally, the attributes of combined cycle power plant systems can be classified either by different subsystem of the combined cycle power plant system or by the different performance characteristics of the combined cycle power plant system as well as matching of its subsystems. For the identification of attributes two methods are adopted. Some of the attributes are identified from the literature and for some attributes a computer program was made. Results obtained from the program also give us new attributes.
