This paper presents the thermodynamic study of a heat and power system which combines an organic Rankine cycle and a gas turbine (GT) cycle. The required power of the compressor in the GT cycle and pump in the Rankine cycle is provided by the WT which according to the amount of cycle required power. For analysis of the cycle, a simulation has been performed using R123 as the working fluid in the Rankine cycle and air and combustion products in the GT cycle. In this end, effect of various parameters such as wind speed, the angular speed of WT, and the gas turbine inlet temperature as well as the compressor pressure ratio, gas turbine isentropic efficiency, condenser temperature and compressor isentropic efficiency on the total thermal efficiency and total exergy efficiency is calculated and analyzed. Thermal efficiency and exergy efficiency of 21.31% and 23.54% is obtained. Also, it is observed that the greatest exergy destruction occurs in the combustion chamber.
