A biomass-fed externally fired gas turbine (EFGT) based on the performance requirements for a small scale heat and power generation plant has been developed at the Institute of Aircraft Propulsion Systems (ILA). This paper presents the results of studies on the operating behaviour of this externally fired gas turbine plant. Simulations of standard steady state and transient operation modes like design point studies or power fluctuations have been examined. Furthermore emergency situations and degradation were simulated. With this simulation a tool has been created not only for studies on technical aspects but also for evaluation of life cycle costs which takes decreasing power outputs and thus required maintenance into consideration.
