A new methodology is developed for the performance estimation of complex cycles such as conventional combined cycle, steam injected gas turbine cycle, AFBC coal burned exhaust heated combined cycle, alternative fuel heat recovery cycle and so on. The basic idea of this method is to compare the performance of the complex cycles with the well-known performance of the main sub-cycle (for example, the gas turbine cycle) in some way and then add simple correction factors if necessary. With such approach, the thermodynamic performance of complex cycles can be estimated and expressed very simply, directly and conveniently. The abovementioned complex cycles have been analyzed successfully by this method; the obtained results are brief and concise, and compared well with practical data and other detailed theoretical analysis results.
