Gas Turbine is a complex system and highly non linear in its overall performance. In order to study its impact on electric power quality under various load conditions, it is essential to create a high quality performance model of gas turbine to simulate its behavior in real time efficiently. This paper focuses on dynamic modeling of generic gas turbine model using alternate simulation environment for better feasibility. The model is developed on a virtual test bed which is an advanced dynamic simulation environment and can run a dynamic co-simulation effectively. The approach is by developing mathematical models of individual components of gas turbines and utilizing component performance map matching method to run the simulation. The paper discusses briefly about the VTB simulation environment and its use for dynamic modeling of gas turbine. The simulation studies carried out include design condition, off design condition and transient conditions. Working model of twin shaft turbine engine using compressor and turbine maps are validated with established gas turbine simulation software and results are shown.
