Introduction of closed-cycle gas turbines with their capability of retaining combustion generated can offer a valuable contribution to the Kyoto goal and to future power generation. The use of well-established gas turbine technology enhanced by recent research results enables designers even today to present proposals for prototype plants. Research and development work of TTM Institute of Graz University of Technology since the 1990s has lead to the Graz cycle, a zero-emission power cycle of highest efficiency and with most positive features. In this work the design for a prototype plant based on current technology as well as cutting-edge turbomachinery is presented. The object of such a plant shall be the demonstration of operational capabilities and shall lead to the planning and design of much larger units of highest reliability and thermal efficiency.
