FLOW DISTRIBUTION CONTROL CHARACTERISTICS IN MARINE GAS TURBINE WASTE-HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEMS. PHASE II - WASTE-HEAT STEAM GENERATORS

This report is in microfiche form. The effect of flow distribution control on the design and performance of waste-heat steam generators is discussed. The applicable steam generator design concepts are reviewed, and critical problems are identified. A once-through counter crossflow heat exchanger is selected for waste-heat recovery from marine gas-turbine exhausts. An optimised deisgn of this is developed, and the effect of flow distribution control on its performance is analysed. It is estimated that flow distribution control could increase the boiler efficiency by about 20%.
