In practical heat production systems, premixed flames with cold heat exchanger in cross-flow is a widely used configuration. Self-excited thermoacoustic instabilities often occur in such systems. A practical way to predict the presence of the instabilities is the network model approach. In the present study, the configuration flame - heat exchanger is analyzed numerically. We first analyze the system as a network of segregated elements. Based on the resulting acoustic scattering matrix, the role of the heat exchanger as an amplifier of the flame resonant frequencies will be discussed. Then, results from the 1D network modeling are compared to results of compressible numerical simulations, performed for several distances between flame and heat exchanger. Finally, the limits to the validity of the segregated network model approach are discussed.
