In this brief report, the analysis of the heat exchanger-regenerator theory is carried out on the basis of a new thermophysical concept − thermal impedance, which allowed us to give a new interpretation of the heat transfer process and a fundamentally different method of thermal calculation periodic heat transfer in it.


heat exchanger-regenerator, electrothermal analogy, thermal impedance, complex thermal resistance, active and reactive resistance.
