The basic principles are as follows:

1. Provision of turbine operation only in the combined cycle mode during the whole calendar year.

2. Choosing only backpressure steam turbines as they provide a maximum efficiency of fuel heat utilization. Such turbines are significantly cheaper than the ones with condensers. Besides, application of backpressure turbines results in significant reduction of costs for technical water supply system construction, and also auxiliary needs as in this case there are no circulation pumps.
