The recently a large number of various companies from the energy sector have to follow new very restrictive regulations which protect the natural environment against pollution and degradation. At the same time, the efficiency of energy conversion and the cost of energy remain important economic aspects. One of the solutions for today's challenges can be power generation based on Gas Turbine Combined Cycle proposed in this paper which is the most efficient and environmentally friendly cycle. What is more important this solution can be easily integrated with a High-Temperature nuclear Reactor. The proposed in this work systems consist of the reactor combined with a gas turbine as well as steam turbine. The results show that it is possible to obtain for proposed cycle an efficiency higher than 50% which is not only more than could be offered by traditional coal power plant but much more than can be proposed by any other nuclear technology.
