This paper will describe a co-generation system using a conventional boiler or process heater and applying a gas turbine to provide preheated combustion air to the boiler or furnace.

A number of design considerations such as applicable type and size of the gas turbine, expected energy savings and control and safety aspects are discussed. These design considerations should be taken into account when retrofitting a conventional plant into a co-generation system.

The paper will also describe such a type of co-generation system with a process heater which is in operation at the Chevron/Texaco Refinery in The Netherlands.
