Abstract: As power systems evolve to incorporate greater penetrations of variable renewables, the demand for flexibility within the system is increased. Combined-cycle gas turbines are traditionally considered as relatively inflexible units, but those which incorporate a steam bypass stack are capable of opencycle operation. Facilitating these units to also operate in opencycle mode can benefit the power system via improved system reliability, while reducing the production needed from dedicated peaking units. The utilization of the multi-mode functionality is shown to be dependent on the flexibility inherent in the system and the manner in which the system is operated.
