Procurement and supply chain solutions COMBINED HEAT & POWER GENERATION
CHP systems are mainly designed for the simultaneous generation of electricity and heat. One primary drive (motor or turbine) shall release the chemical energy of fuel and convert it into mechanical power at the output axis. Under such situations, the drive axis shall couple with a generator and generate electrical power. On the other hand, the maximum available efficiency for the primary and generating drive shall be less than 50 % and this means loss of more than half the fuel energy into heat. In this type of system, the loss sources of heat which consists of outlet gases from the primary drive, cooling cycle and lubricating oil are identified and the lost heat is recovered in the form of heat with high temperature (usable heat) by placing heat exchangers.
With the ability to recover the losing heat in the combined heat power generating systems, the unique characteristic of this system can be achieved.
Whereas, CHP system in generating both of these products has about 95% efficiency.
This means that its electrical efficiency is about 35 % and its heat efficiency is 60 %. (As an explanatory remark, heat efficiency includes heat energy produced into consumption energy).
On the other hand, in comparison with the prevailing similar systems of electricity generation and heat production that are separate, about 40% less fuel is consumed.
Reduction in fuel consumption shall drastically reduce expenditure on fuel cost in the economic basket of the unit.
Similarly, from the national point of view, this saving in fuel consumption can be considered advantageous whether by way of exports or by providing conditions for efficient and beneficial use of fossil fuels.
The Advantages of Small Scale Power Generation Gas Burner Generator using Natural Gas:
• Short construction period and easy installation positioning
• Ability to work under urban gas pressure
• Do not need too much water for cooling
• Ease of functional use as CHP in comparison with large and centralized power plants
• Easy portability and relocation
• Capable of using dual fuel (can use replacement fuel in case gas is disconnected)
• New source of income by selling excess energy to the national Grid
• Simultaneous generation of CHP electricity and heat, CCHP electricity consumption, cooling and heat.
• Reducing worries arising from fluctuations in electricity prices for self-consumption power plants
• Island operation mode and standby mode
• Parallel operation with network
• Having energy generation and supply source with high protection factor
• Elimination of transmission losses and reduction of power distribution losses
• Lack of environmental pollutant emissions
• Increased power supply reliability and improvement in power quality
• Reducing the need for investment in transmission and distribution network development
• Local supply of reactive power
• Enhanced network storage and making sure that price of purchased electricity generated by Tavanir is more than the price of power consumed.
