Performance evaluation of an electricity base load engine cogeneration system
International Journal Of Energy Research. John Wiley & Sons Ltd, v. 34, n. 9, n. 787, n. 799, 2010.
Decentralized electricity production by cogeneration can result in primary energy economy, as these systems operate with a high-energy utilization factor (EUF), producing electricity and recovering energy rejected by the prime mover to meet site thermal demands. Because energy demands in buildings vary with such factors as the hour of the day, level of activity and climatic conditions, cogeneration case studies should consider different system configurations, energy demand profiles and climatic profiles. This paper analyzes an engine cogeneration system as an integrated thermal system by means of a computational simulation program. The simulation takes into account characteristics of the system, characteristics of the pieces of equipment, design choices and parameters. the variability of operating conditions, site energy demand profiles and climatic data to evaluate the performance of the cogeneration plant. Performance evaluation is based on (i) the EUF (ii) the exergy efficiency and (iii) primary energy savings analysis, Copyright (C) 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.349787799
