The present investigation deals with study of thermoelastic damping and frequency shift of Kirchhoff plate resonators by using generalized thermoelasticity theory of dual-phase-lag model. The basic equations of motion and heat conduction equation are written with the help of Kirchhoff-Love plate theory and dual phase lag model. The analytical expressions for thermoelastic damping and frequency shift of modified couple stress dual-phase-lag thermoelastic plate have been obtained. A computer algorithm has been constructed to obtain the numerical results. Influences of modified couple stress dual-phase-lag thermoelastic plate, dual- phase-lag thermoelastic plate and Lord-Shulman (L-S, 1967) thermoelastic plate with few vibration modes on the thermoelastic damping and frequency shift are examined. The thermoelastic damping and frequency shift with varying values of length and thickness are shown graphically for clamped-clamped and simply-supported boundary conditions. It is observed from the results that the  damping factor and frequency shift have noticed larger value in the presence of couple stress for varying values of length but opposite effect are shown for varying values of thickness in case of both vibration modes and boundary conditions.
