The application of the Buckingham theorem to modeling high-pressure regenerative heat exchangers in changed conditions
AbstractAbstract The study presents the possibility of applying the Buckingham theorem to modeling high-pressure regenerative heat exchangers in changed conditions. A list of independent parameters on which the water temperature at the outlet of the heat exchanger depends was selected; and by means of the Buckingham theorem a functional relation between two dimensionless quantities, where there is no overall heat transfer coefficient, was obtained. The exact form of the function was determined on the basis of actual measurement data and a linear relation between two dimensionless quantities was obtained. The correctness of the proposed relation was examined for two high-pressure regenerative exchangers for a 200 MW power plant.
