Saving resources - increasing profitability
Combined heat and power plants are outstanding in terms of their payback times. Thanks to considerable savings in the use of fuel, the acquisition costs of a CHP unit will pay for themselves - provided that professional planning and system design are required - after only 3 to 5 years!
By using the waste heat that is generated during power generation as heating or process heat, the energy efficiency of a combined heat and power plant can reach more than 90%. The benefit of combined heat and power generation compared to conventional energy generation, which reaches a maximum of 40% even when using the latest technology, is clear.
Various funding programs, low-interest loans and tax breaks additionally contribute to the fact that the investment in your own CHP is also worthwhile for you in every respect.
Here is an example to illustrate how switching to a CHP unit can pay off: See example here.
Efficient energy generation through combined heat and power
What is cogeneration?
The highly efficient and resource-conserving simultaneous generation of electrical energy and heat in a stationary technical system is known as cogeneration. This process is mainly carried out by internal combustion engines, gas and / or steam turbines in combination with a generator. Stirling engines, ORC systems and fuel cells are also used.
Combined heat and power through CHP
The principle of cogeneration is optimally used through the use of combined heat and power plants (CHP). An internal combustion engine drives a synchronous generator, which generates 3-phase alternating current with a voltage of 400 V and a frequency of 50 Hz. usually in parallel operation. Synchronous generators continue to offer the option of network backup operation. Excess electricity can be fed into the existing utility network. The heat generated by the engine, obtained from the exhaust gases and the cooling water from the engine, is transferred to the system operator's heating system through a plate heat exchanger.
Advantages of CHP technology
The advantage of the combined generation of electrical energy and heat is obvious: the primary energy used is used much better and more effectively than is possible with conventional energy generation through condensation power plants, in which electricity and heat are produced separately and far from the consumer , Even the most modern central heating systems only use up to 40% of the primary energy used, since most of the heat generated is lost as waste heat. By using CHP units, these losses can be minimized to approx. 10% and thus enable very high efficiencies of up to 90%.
