A general method capable to solve optimization power plant problems simultaneously with the solution of equations describing the plant behavior is discussed.

The method has been implemented into CGSPO code whose main features as the plant modular structure and its automatic assembling are described.

Procedures foreseen in the code are: cycle calculations, sizing of components and off-design analysis. Examples showing the capabilities and the flexibility of the method are given.

The code is suitable for the analysis of plant including commercially available machines whose modifications to match with other components may be investigated.
