Thermodynamic decision variables are no less than 15 for any system, and the thermodynamic decisions trigger both design and manufacture decisions because of the design and manufacture degrees of freedom involved. Graphs are more transparent in presenting results for cases of one or two decision variables. The number of two and three-dimensional relations explodes, however, with a large number of decision variables. 1 is a flow diagram showing a steam turbine both idle and refiring active under less than design power load.
