This paper approaches the argument of cogeneration in aircraft propulsion. It presents an effective design of a cogeneration system with thrust augmentation by heat recovery for aeronautic propulsion which can be installed inside an electrical ducted fan unit. The system optimization is based on constructal law. Energy comparison against potential competitors is produced together with an analysis in terms of GHG emissions.
