  • CHP efficiency for biogas

    Combined heat and power plant efficiency is a function of the conversion efficiency of the energy in the fuel gas to useful energy in the form of electricity and heat. A combined heat and power (CHP) plant is typically a reciprocating gas engine that uses the energy in the gas to drive a crank shaft. The crank shaft turns an alternator to ...

  • Greenstars portable monitoring for CHP and flares

    Greenstar’s award-winning KTK landfill site in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, is unusual in Ireland in that it has three gas engines feeding electricity to the grid and two flares. In Ireland, while flaring is common, engines are not. The flares are run in tandem with engines so that if an engine is ramped down for repair or service, the flare ramps up automatically. All are supplied by 122 ...

  • Combined Heat and Power (CHP) essentials

    'CHP essentials' introduces the concept of power and heat 'production possibility sets', starting at the cradle of CHP, i.e., the thermal power generation plant. The latter always occasions 'fatal' heat that is either recovered (the 'merit' of CHP) or wasted (condensing). This split paves the way to defining the production possibility sets of CHP plants, shown for steam turbines, internal ...

  • Quantifying Combined Heat and Power (CHP) activity

    In CHP plants without heat rejection facilities power, output is complementary to the recovery of heat, and all activity is cogeneration. CHP plants with heat rejection facilities can operate a mix of cogeneration and condensing activities. Quantifying the energy flows of both activities properly requires knowledge of the design power-to-heat ratios of the CHP processes (steam and gas turbines, ...

  • Exergy and exergoeconomic analysis and optimisation of diesel engine based Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system using genetic algorithm

    In the present study, a diesel engine based Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system is optimised using exergoeconomic concept and genetic algorithm. For this purpose, the CHP system is first thermodynamically analysed through energy and exergy. Then cost balances and auxiliary equations are applied to subsystems. Finally an objective function representing fuel cost, cost of exergy loss and ...
