Primary surface recuperator is important for micro gas turbines, the flow distribution and pressure loss are sensitive to the induct structure design significantly. The air induct structure for one recuperator is modelled and simulated. Several flow fields and pressure losses are obtained for different designs of air induct structure. The air induct structure can affect the flow uniformity, further influence the pressure loss a lot. For several changes of air induct structure, the non-distribution of air flow can be decreased from 67% to 13%, and the pressure loss can be decreased to 50% of the original. Considering the recuperator design and the gas turbine, one optimized structure is recommended, which has less local pressure loss and better flow distribution.
