A previous study of an indirect fired air turbine cogeneration system has been extended to include the concept of regeneration. The effect of regenerator effectiveness and full regeneration as well as partial regeneration on system performance parameters (such as fuel utilization efficiency, power-to-heat ratio and second-law efficiency) are examined. An important conclusion of this study is that a regenerative gas turbine cogeneration system is capable of producing large power-to-heat ratios for various process conditions requiring the use of only moderate compressor compression ratio and moderately effective regenerators. It appears that this is an attractive system which could compete in a market that is currently dominated by internal combustion engines when a viable fludized bed air heater is available.
