The Digital Power Plant is Here

It's GE's vision for the future of power generation. Read more.

Peak-Performing Products for Optimal Power Plant Systems

GE integrates technology, experience, and people to deliver the highest value simple-cycle and combined-cycle power plants anywhere in the world. This value comes from technologies that provide the lowest lifecycle cost of converting fuel into electricity.

More Than 60 Years of Experience

We've been designing combined-cycle power plants since 1949, longer than any other OEM. Gas turbines have evolved from relatively small, simple peaking machines to much larger combined-cycle plants capable of powering a city. GE draws on this rich technology heritage and continues to innovate, developing advanced materials, cooling, aerodynamics, combustion, and controls technologies to enhance gas turbine-based power generation.

POWER PLANT BEST PRACTICES: A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE

GE has worked with all types of customers and numerous Engineering, Procurement, and Construction companies (EPCs). This knowledge is showcased in GE Power & Water Combined Cycle Power Plant Best Practices 2015, written to ensure that all stakeholders understand how to extract the most value from GE-supplied equipment when designing and building a combined cycle power plant. Register in PowerPlay Insights for access to this document.

Meeting Diverse Customer Needs and Applications

GE’s comprehensive and integrated plant
approach results in customized power systems that meet a variety of customer needs and applications, including:

  • Industrial and utility scale power
  • Combined heat and power (CHP)
  • District heating
  • Integrated gasification combined cycle
  • Integrated water and power production (IWPP)

Balancing key customer considerations

Power plant configurations are specific to each
customer’s needs and economic criteria, as well
as operating and installation limitations. The right power plant takes certain considerations into account:

  • Requirements and constraints capture the plant mission and goals, the interface of the plant to infrastructure, and location-based restrictions.
  • Physical implementation considers how the plant is built, operated, and maintained.
  • Function refers to the operation and interaction of the five major plant subsystems: the topping cycle, the bottoming cycle, heat rejection, electrical conversion, and plant integration.

Breaking the Plant Down into Five Parent Systems

GE’s integrated systems approach includes analysis and development of not only the power generation equipment components but also the balance of plant systems. Performance and cost are measured at both the component and plant level to increase customer value. GE accomplishes this by segmenting the plant into five major systems. At the center of each system are GE’s power generation offerings: gas turbines, steam turbines, generators, and controls.
