Heat recovery boilers utilizing the exhaust from gas turbines continue to be viable as industrial cogeneration systems. This paper outlines the types of heat recovery boilers available for use with gas turbines (1–100 MW). It discusses the design and performance criteria for both unfired and supplementary fired gas turbine exhaust heat recovery boilers of single and multiple pressure levels. Equations to assist in energy balances are included along with design features of heat recovery system components. The economic incentive to achieve the maximum practical heat recovery versus the impact on boiler design and capital cost are examined and discussed. It is intended that the information presented in this paper will be of use to individuals who are not intimately familiar with gas turbine heat recovery systems so that they can better specify and evaluate potential systems.
