The electric utility industry is finding a need for a new class of generation termed intermediate. This paper presents results of generation addition pattern studies performed to determine the relative merits of steam peaking plants and combined cycle plants in filling these needs. Corresponding optimum addition patterns are established for simple cycle gas turbine and nuclear power plants. The combined cycle and steam peaking plants are shown to be comparable at high cost levels, while the combined cycle shows definite advantage if permitted to burn non-distillate fuel.
