  Abstract: Today, thermodynamics allows modeling processes that are innovative, added to this, the development of economic processes allows us to create links to the explanation of formulations in a different social, ethical, and historic context. So the relationship between thermodynamics and economics tries to solve conditions on the border of both sciences, proposing thermo-economics as a new branch of knowledge like econophysics, sociophysics, or quantum computing. In this work, we will determine the economically optimal operating point to models of power plants, using different energy transfer laws, similar to Curzon-Ahlborn, through the study of several operation regimes (optimization criteria) such as maximum power out, maximum ecological function, and maximum efficiency.
