The Brayton Cycle: Regeneration
Regeneration with Reheat and Intercooling
Brayton Cycle with Regenerationuses a heat exchanger called a regenerator to preheat the air-fuel mixture before it is fed to the combustion chamber using the turbine effluent as the heat source.
regeneratorreduces QC and QH for the cycle by the same amount. This has no effect on the power produced, but increases the
thermal efficiencyof the cycle.
- Capital cost and fuel prices determine whether a regenerator is justifiable.
