Energy and ecology equipment
Cogeneration plant based on gas engine power plant from MetalPromExport, LLC is intended for simultaneous generation of heat and electric power. Major purpose of cogeneration plant is electric power supply to the consumers and the heat generated during this process can be used for heating and hot water supply. Cogeneration plants based on gas engine power plants can be fueled by the following types of gases — natural, coke gas, manure gas, associated petroleum gas (APG), etc.
Applications of Gas Engine Cogeneration Plants
Thanks to a wide range of capacities cogeneration plants are more commonly used in different household and production areas:
Use of cogeneration plant provides following advantages:
Heat Recovery System: operation principle and diagram
Cogeneration is performed by an appliance that includes gas engine power plant and heat recovery system. Cogeneration plant is comprised of 4 major units: internal combustion engine, electric generator, heat recovery system (HRS) and control system.
Cogeneration plant: operation principle.
Circulation cycle of heating water through the heat recovery system of cogeneration plant: heat-transfer liquid (heating water) goes to the heat-recovery boiler of cogeneration plant. Exhaust gases coming from the engine of gas engine power plant go through the shell-and-tube exchanger of heat-recovery boiler. Heat is transferred from exhaust gases to the heat-transfer liquid (water) in the heat-recovery boiler. Then heat-transfer liquid goes to the consumer's heating system from which heat is collected for consumer's needs. This cycle is the main one since it is the very point at which heat power is collected for consumer's needs.
Coolant circulation cycle (~Tosol): when operated internal combustion engine of gas engine power plant eventually reaches a particular temperature limit (~90 °С) - thermostat opens access to heat dump radiator. Excessive heat is collected from radiator with air flow and emitted to the atmosphere.
Specification of cogeneration plants for gas engine power plants:
Versions of cogeneration plants manufactured by MetalPromExport:
Location of cogeneration plant in special container unit has several advantages: weather resistance, no need to obtain permission documentation from regulatory authorities for conformance of building for accommodation of electric power plants, suitability for relocation without deinstallation of equipment installed.
Cogeneration plants based on gas engine power plants from MetalPromExport, LLC can be used as a main source of electric and heat power, or backup source for electric power. Implementation of cogeneration technology makes it possible for consumer to satisfy the needs for electric and heat power, which results in economic profit and increase of energy security.
