  • Abstract: Abstract In this study, a new configuration where syngas produced by downdraft gasifier is feed directly in an externally fired air turbine is discussed. Attention was posed towards the critical component of this configuration: the heat exchanger. To achieve acceptable electrical efficiencies, high temperature of the air at the inlet turbine section was imposed. A code for heat exchanger design was built by using Matlab®, while the geometrical optimization was performed by using modeFRONTIER® by imposing a multi-objective function to maximize the overall heat transfer coefficient and minimize both costs and pressure drops across the equipment.
