The scope of this chapter is to assess the performance of hybrid power plants and more specifically demonstrate the challenges of partnering the wind turbines with gas turbines. A dynamic engine model of a gas turbine along with a wind turbine model is developed to simulate plethora of scenarios for optimizing their operation in terms of efficiency, fuel consumption and NOx emissions. Moreover, a comparison between the hybrid power plant and a twin gas turbine power plant is carried out to assess the improvement in both NOx emissions and fuel consumption. The results demonstrate and illustrate the significant impact that dynamic performance modeling has in the optimization and controller design of hybrid power plant.
