The effect of installing steam injected gas turbines in a cogeneration plant is analyzed in the aspects of unit sizing and operational planning. An optimization method is used to determine the capacities of gas turbines and other auxiliary machinery in consideration of their operational strategies for variations of electricity and thermal energy demands. Through a numerical study on a plant for district hearing and cooling, it is clarified how the installation of steam injected gas turbines in place of simple cycle ones can improve the economic and energy saving properties. The influence of capital cost of steam injected gas turbines on the unit sizing and the above properties is also clarified.
