This model is about Concentrated Solar Tower (CST) for power generation by the use of Gas Turbine Cycle (GTC) Regeneration with different working gases. Users can assign the grid needed power. The load power from the user is mainly supplied from the GTC. Steam Rankine Cycle (SRC) is attached as bottoming combined cycle. The exhaust from the Solar GTC would power on the SRC. In order to obtain all design aspects such as:
1-Design aspects for GTC.
2-Energy, and Exergy streams are calculated.
3-Working fluid mass flow rate through the cycle.
All cycles are prepared for dynamic and fixed-point modeling. All cycles are designed for electric power generation. Users can change the working fluid by assigning the specific heat capacity of the selected gas type. Users can switch between solar and gas-fired combustion chambers. The cycle contains the following:
1-Low pressure compressor.
2-Intercooler.
3-High pressure compressor.
4-Heat exchanger.
5-Combustion chamber I (CST) solar tower.
6-High pressure turbine.
7-Combustion chamber II (CST) solar tower.
8-Low pressure turbine.
9-The exhaust from the Low-pressure turbine will be used as a power source for the Steam Rankine Cycle. The SRC contains:
1-BHX for thermal power (steam generator).
2-HP Turbine.
3-Reheat.
4-LP Turbine.
5-2 closed feed heaters.
6-1 open feed heater
