One of the ways to make an efficient use of energy resources is to generate power from combined cycle power plants. Besides, the implementation of supplementary firing in a combined cycle plant helps to increase its generated power. In addition, the exergoeconomic analysis is pursued by 1) carrying out a systematic approach, based on the Fuel-Product methodology, in each component of the system; and 2) generating a set of equations, which allows compute the exergetic and exergoeconomic costs of each flow. For this analysis, the environmental conditions correspond 25 °C, 1.013 bar and 45 % relative humidity. Therefore, in this work an exergoeconomic analysis of a triple-level pressure combined cycle with a 2 × 2 × 1 arrangement with and without supplementary firing is performed, so the combined cycle with supplementary firing generates 484.62 MW and has a power relation between the gas turbine cycle and steam turbine cycle of 1.35:1. Meanwhile, the combined cycle without supplementary firing generates 427.25 MW with a power ratio of the gas turbine cycle and steam turbine cycle of 1.87:1.
