Gas-turbine power plants, combined heat and power plants

In gas-turbine power plants, flammable gases are used to drive turbines. These turbines are in turn connected to generators which actually produce the electricity. In gas and steam combination power plants, the heat generated by the gas turbines is also used to produce steam for the steam turbines. Small gas power plants (socalled combined heat and power plants) use an internal combustion engine instead of a turbine to drive the generator. These combined heat and power plants are frequently used in order to cover periods of peak demand within the electricity network.
