To fulfill the present and future industrial, commercial, and residential electrical energy demands, power-generating technologies needs special attention. The continuous and large-scale burning of fossil fuels for power generation results in environmental pollution, acid rain, and global warming, etc. A combined-cycle power plant is the first step in this direction that helps to reduce the fuel consumption as well as air pollution for generating as compared to conventional power (CP) plant. From the last few years, researchers developed many techniques that enhance the performance of combined cycle power plants based on its operating parameters. Integrating the combined-cycle power plant with renewable energy not only enhances the overall plant thermal efficiency but also reduces environmental pollution to large extent. Solar energy is one of the ample source of energy that could be used for power generation by integrating the solar field with thermal power plant, gas turbine power plant, and combined cycle power plant. The solar integrated power plant could be broadly classified as solar integrated thermal power plant, solar integrated gas turbine power plant, and solar integrated combined cycle power plant. There are many operating factors of the plant as well as the solar circuit that significantly affects the performance of overall performance of the plant. But in general, it is noted that the localized cost of electricity through solar integrated power plants is reduced as compared to the conventional power plant.
