gas engine CHP Articles
The lower heating value (LHV) or higher heating value (HHV) of a gas is an important consideration when selecting a gas engine or CHP plant. Gas engines efficiency is typically quoted based upon the LHV of the gas. Whenever a hydrocarbon fuel is burned one product of combustion is water. The quantity of water produced is dependent upon the amount of hydrogen in the fuel. Due to high combustion ...
Europe’s Largest Mine Gas Plant
GE Jenbacher has supplied 14 cogeneration systems to Europe’s largest coal mine gas plant, Fenne, which is owned by SaarEnergie and located in the district of Fenne near Saarbrücken, Germany, GE Energy announced at Hannover Messe 2004. The JMS 620 GS cogeneration systems produce more than 40 megawatts of electricity and nearly 41 megawatts of thermal energy. This coal mine gas plant ...
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, ...
Gas engines for resiliency of site operation
The choice to deploy a combined heat and power (CHP) system, utilising reciprocating gas engines, is often an investment decision to help drive cost and carbon savings to an organisation, whose focus is not traditionally, power generation. Clarke Energy have deployed CHP in numerous ‘critical’ applications around the world; whereby a power outage could cause considerable disruption ...
Assessment of a CHP system based on economical, fuel consumption and environmental considerations
Combined heat and power (CHP) systems which are able to produce heating and power simultaneously, are getting more attention since they have many economical and environmental benefits. CHP systems for buildings are an important application of CHP on various systems designs. In this study, we have investigated a CHP system applicable for the building of Azad University of Shahrood. The prime mover ...
Combined Heat And Power Distillery - Captain Morgan - Case Study
OWNER DIAGEO LOCATION St. Croix, US Virgin Islands PRODUCT Centaur® 50 (4.6 MW) Gas Turbine CUSTOMER VALUE LPG Fuel and Cost Savings On the island of St. Croix, located in the Virgin Islands, the Captain Morgan rum distillery uses a Centaur 50 gas turbine for combined heat and power (CHP). The unit provides both electricity and steam for the distillery's operations. Diageo chose the ...
Hydrogen as Future Fuel for Gas Engines
Gas engines are providing a wide range of fuel flexibility from burning natural gas and a variety of non- natural gaseous fuels from low British Thermal Unit (BTU) gases as well as gases containing a high hydrogen content. Hydrogen containing gases can be found as by-product from steel (furnace gas) or chemical process, or alternatively hydrogen is produced and blended to natural gas. In the ...
New technology enables biogas plant optimization
Governments around the world are seeking to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the fight against climate change, to reduce waste to landfill, and to increase their utilisation of renewable energy in compliance with international agreements. Consequently, in many countries, subsidies have been made available to encourage the growth of the biogas sector. According to the International ...
