Combined Cycle and Simple (Open) Cycle Gas Turbine Project Finance Model Template (Financials Tab) – free demo

This is the latest project finance model template (financials tab or worksheet) that your energy technology selection expert has developed for the various natural gas-fired power generation technologies. Familiarize with the template and if interested, get the full unlocked version for your immediate use. I can also provide data input service or customize further the model.

Natural gas is a clean fuel that may be used in simple cycle (open cycle or Brayton cycle) gas turbines such as those used in jet engines, or when the waste heat is recovered in a heat recovery boiler (Rankin cycle). This two cycles (Brayton and Rankin) combine to raise the overall thermal efficiency from 33% to over 54%.

This advanced model allows you to perform the following:

1) Determine the impact of electricity tariff (selling price) on NPV, IRR and payback given the capital cost, fuel cost and O&M cost.

2) Determine the maximum main fuel price (natural gas, gas oil) to meet IRR given electricity tariff, capital cost and O&M cost.

3) Determine the maximum capital cost (all-in) to meet IRR given electricity tariff, fuel price and O&M cost.

4) Perform sensitivity analysis (+/- 10% change) on variables such as electricity tariff, rated capacity, plant heat rate (efficiency), fuel cost, capital cost and O&M costs on IRR.

5) The IRR may be defined as DCF-ROI (project cost vs cash flow), DCF-ROE (equity portion of project cost vs cash flow), DCF-FC (equity portion vs free cashflow), and discounted DCF-FC (native currency is depreciating vs foreign currency).  The model provides for analysis with escalation (nominal IRR) and without escalation (real IRR).

6) Optimize type of CCGT engine/manufacturer, plant location and cooling system (once thru sea water, once thru lake water, river cooling tower, deep well cooling tower, radiator cooling) and transmission line system (type of conductor).  The optimal configuration is determined by the combination that provides the cheapest electricity tariff, cheapest fuel or highest IRR.
