What is the role of regenerator in Gas Power Plants
Question: What is the role of the regenerator in gas power plants?
Answer: A regenerator recovers the waste heat from exhaust gases of the gas turbine.
Majority of power plants use WHR (Waste heat recovery) cycle for improving the efficiency of the cycle. In gas power plants the waste heat from exhaust gases of turbine passes through the regenerator. The compressed air entering the regenerator is heated through exhaust gases.
