Abstract: In this paper, the basis of the models of the condensate water and the air cooled condenser are presented. The models are part of a full scope simulator of a 450 MW combined cycle power plant. The simulator is executed in real time and is intended to be a support for the training of the operators of the ComisiĆ³n Federal de Electricidad (the Mexican utility company). The simulator is presently in the final acceptance tests stage and is programmed to be in commercial operation in 2010. Here, are included a summary of the modelling methodology used to develop the referred models and the mathematical fundaments used to obtain the main equations. The tendencies of selected variables during a transient are displayed and analysed in order to probe the validity of the new generic models.
