Abstract—A deterministic quantitative model based on graph theoretical methodology has been developed to compare various technical features of gas turbine power plants and is used to evaluate and rank the power plants in ascending or descending order in accordance with the value of their efficiency index. The plant with rank one is the optimized selection for the customer¡¯s/user¡¯s desires on the particular application under consideration. This efficiency index is the permanent value of the plant attribute matrix, which is a combination of attribute rating matrix and attribute relative importance matrix. The graph theoretic model developed is explained and illustrated with an example problem.

Index Terms—Graph theory approach, Gas turbine power plant, Digraph, Matrix, Permanent function
