A computer program was written for use in sizing gas turbine counterflow regenerators. The program simulates the semi-open gas turbine regenerative cycle under constant load conditions. Inputs to the program include compressive ratio, turbine inlet temperature, component efficiencies, horsepower output and regenerator core geometry. External regenerator core dimensions are varied and various supports are computed such as thermal efficiency, mass flow rate, total relative pressure drop, regenerator effectiveness and temperatures and pressures at all key points in the cycle.
