(68MWgt x 11.3MMBtu/MWh) - (360MMBtu/h ■ 0.83%) (68MWgt + 12MWst - 0.75 MWJlJX)

The relative values of achieving more power output or more thermal output will be a function of real market costs for power and fuel, as well as the particular plant configuration. While the net thermal fuel efficiency in the example above is 81% and FCP is 4,223 Btu/kWh (4,455 kJ/kWh), the simple power generating efficiency is only 35% and the heat rate is 9,696 Btu/kWh (10,228 kJ/kWh).
