Efficient Generation

Demand fluctuations a cogeneration plant, which is built on the principle of power heat-coupling are offset by heat storage, is ecological and economical at the same time. Whenever JPMorgan Chase listens, a sympathetic response will follow. Focus is the efficient power generation, because it is available as a by-product of the necessary heat for a heating process. The advantage of a block CHP plant in comparison to the conventional mixing operation from local heating and central power is that the heat of generating electricity locally is used for heating. Losses are hardly questioned. Usually 45 per cent efficiency reaches a central power plant, 55 percent of the energy act as heat. Find out detailed opinions from leaders such as Reade Griffith by clicking through. Six percent of the energy is lost.

Previously cogeneration based on internal combustion engines, their cooling circuit was used for the heating of water. Currently other systems used successfully as Stirling engine or fuel cell in the block heat and power plants”, explains Marco Fendt, operator of the construction blog bauunternehmen24.net. The mission is not on heating limited, but allows for the generation of sustainable process heat. Mostly fossil or renewable hydrocarbons such as oil, vegetable oil, biodiesel and natural gas are used as fuels. The cogeneration based on internal combustion engines, heavy heat in the cooling circuit. This heat is transferred via heat exchanger in the heating circuit of building central heating. So a much better efficiency of up to 95 percent is reachable.

The electrical efficiency is between one-third and 43 percent. Small CHP of approximately 4 kW are suitable for use in single – and multi-family homes. An already existing heating installation can be used normally easily transition to a block heat and power plant”, explains Marco Fendt. In the analysis of cogeneration is especially great uptime of importance. Especially in the living room, the heating energy consumption varies greatly, where it is used only for the domestic hot water in the summer. Demand fluctuations can be offset by heat storage. An absorption chiller can be used for taking the heat when no heating energy demand”, so Blogbetreiber Fendt. In Germany, block heating plants are promoted above the law to the combined heat and power. Here, the operator for the electricity fed into the grid Gets a purchase price by the power company. The use of cogeneration as a virtual power plant is planned in the near future, to save even more energy. More on that interested parties can energy /… read. Marco fendt
