Combined Heat and Power District CHP – Cogeneration

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Combined Heat and Power District CHP – Cogeneration

Combined heat and power also known as cogeneration is the simultaneous production of heat and the generation of electric power from a single source. Combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP), or trigeneration, is the process in which cooling is also generated by waste heat in a CHP plant

Benefits of CHP

  • Lowered overall facility energy consumption costs
  • Improved overall facility reliability
  • Increased total system thermodynamic efficiency
  • Reduced electricity demand on constrained utility grid and fully loaded generation equipment
  • Reduced source energy use (i.e., total fuel consumption)
  • Reduced total CO2 emissions and reduced carbon footprint
  • Lowered aggregate demand for resources
  • Ability to use bio-fuel, bio-gases and concentrated solar power
  • Sustainable

Prime Mover Engine types:  Internal Combustion reciprocating engines, Combustion turbine generators, Microturbines, Fuel cells, Stirling engines

Prime Mover Fuel Types.  Natural gas is the leading fuel in existing CHP installations; Technologies such as oil are often environmentally restricted; Bio-fuels and bio-gases are new sustainable sources; Biomass will be an important source for some areas in the future

Heat Recovery Boiler HRSG. Similar to a typical fuel-fired boiler, except that instead of having a combustion chamber or firebox, the unfired pressure vessel extracts heat from the prime mover exhaust to produce typically either hot water or steam; maximum possible steam pressure is a function of the flue gas temperature

CHP sizing options. Island mode (isolated operation), for electric base-load; for thermal base-load; for intermediate loads, for peaking loads, power load following, thermal load following

Beneficios CHP

  • Reducción costos operativos de energía eléctrica y térmica
  • Incremento de la eficiencia termodinámica del sistema total
  • Reducción de la demanda eléctrica
  • Reducción del total de emisiones CO2 al ambiente y reducción de la huella de carbón
  • Habilidad para usar bio combustibles, bio gas, energía solar


El Gas Natural es el combustible líder en instalaciones CHP existentes

Bio combustibles and bio gases son nuevas Fuentes sostenibles

Biomasa esta iniciando pero se espera un buen crecimiento

Equipo principal: Motores reciprocantes de combustión interna, Micro-turbinas , Turbinas a gas CTG, Fuel Cells, Stirling Engines
