Holiday Sale this December 2017 on Deterministic (fixed inputs) and Stochastic (random Monte Carlo Simulation) Power Plant Project Finance Models

Flash News:

There is great enthusiasm for the new models as 3 models have been purchased:

Dec 6 – Deterministic (fixed inputs) ADV NatGas Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) – USD100

Dec 9 – Deterministic (fixed inputs) ADV NatGas Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) – USD100

Dec 12 – Dual-capable Deterministic (fixed inputs) and Stochastic (Monte Carlo simulation random inputs) ADV Mini-hydro (run-of-river) – USD200 (buy one model to do both deterministic and stochastic modeling).

The client would use the mini-hydro model to study the following sensitivities:

1) 2 x 4.00 MW design capacity at 50% availability, 92% load factor and 2% parasitic load for a net capacity factor of 45.08%.  All-in capital cost is 3,523 $/kW while fixed O&M cost is 16.96 ‘000$/kW/year (excluding G&A of 20.00 ‘000$/year) and variable O&M cost is 2.40 $/MWh.

2) Vary the unit capacity of 4.00 MW to minimum and maximum value based on minimum river flow and maximum river flow (from hydrologic study) by using the power equation to predict power output given head (m net head) and river flow (m/s discharge rate).

3) Construction period of 2 years (24 months) with 0 year delay and 1 year (24 months) delay. This will increase construction cost (and thus all-in capital cost due to inflation) as well as first year tariff (feed-in-tariff) needed to meet equity and project returns.

Be part of my growing clientele of project finance modelers and develop your alternative cases or configuration and optimize your business concept and write your own project feasibility studies.

The following models may be downloaded for only USD100 for deterministic (uses fixed inputs) and USD200 for stochastic (uses random inputs using Monte Carlo Simulation) for the all clients this December 1-30, 2017.

Once I confirm receipt of payment, I will then email you the deterministic model (cost USD100) and the stochastic (Monte Carlo Simulation) model (cost USD200) should you desire it.

The models for renewable, conventional, fossil, nuclear, energy storage, and combined heat and power (CHP) project finance models are based on a single template so that you can prioritize which power generation technology to apply in a given application for more detailed design and economic study.

Our company (OMT Energy Enterprises) can also provide customization services to provide you with power plant project finance models with fixed inputs (deterministic models) as well as random inputs (stochastic models). If you have an existing model which you want to be audited or upgraded to have stochastic modeling capability, you may also avail of our services at an hourly rate of USD200 per hour for a maximum of 5 hours of charge for customization services.

The model inputs consist of the fixed inputs (independent variables) plus a random component as shown below (based on +/- 10% range, which you can edit in the Sensitivity worksheet):

1) Plant availability factor (% of time) = 94.52% x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

2) Fuel heating value (GHV) = 5,198 Btu/lb x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

3) Plant capacity per unit = 12.00 MW/unit x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

4) Variable O&M cost (at 5.26 $/MWh) = 30.05 $000/MW/year x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

5) Fixed O&M cost (at 105.63 $/kW/year) = 1,227.64 $000/unit/year x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

6) Fixed G&A cost = 10.00 $000/year x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

7) Cost of fuel = 1.299 PHP/kg x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

8) Plant heat rate = 12,186 Btu/kWh x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

9) Exchange rate = 43.00 PHP/USD x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

10) Capital cost = 1,935 $/kW x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

The dependent variables that will be simulated using Monte Carlo Simulation and which a distribution curve (when you make bold font the number of random trials) may be generated are as follows:

1) Equity Returns (NPV, IRR, PAYBACK) at 30% equity, 70% debt

2) Project Returns (NPV, IRR, PAYBACK) at 100% equity, 0% debt

3) Net Profit After Tax

4) Pre-Tax WACC

5) Electricity Tariff (Feed-in-Tariff)

The models below are in Philippine Pesos (PHP) and may be converted to any foreign currency by inputting the appropriate exchange rate (e.g. 1 USD = 1.0000 USD; 1 USD = 50.000 PHP, 1 USD = 3.800 MYR, etc.). Then do a global replacement in all worksheets of ‘PHP’ with ‘XXX’, where ‘XXX’ is the foreign currency of the model.

CDM Biomass Cogeneration Model2.xls

In addition to the worksheets found in the ADV models of the regulator, 5 additional tabs or worksheets have been added (Capex, Opex, Revenues, Project IRR and Sensitivity) into the CDM model which is a financial evaluation without taxes (that distort the economic and technical performance) and debt (pure equity investment). For the RE project to benefit from CDM credits, the project IRR should not be more than 15% p.a.

Energy Balance for Power, Heat, Cooling

September 27th, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Trigeneration and Cogeneration

Energy Balance for Power, Heat, Cooling

Addressing climate change and global warming needs effective counter measures such as reducing GHG emission from carbon dioxide emitted by fossil-fired power plants.

Using tri-generation systems is one effective measure that could be used to reduce fuel consumption  as it increases energy utilization efficiency from the traditional 33% for Rankin steam cycles (oil, gas, coal thermal) to 54% for combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) to tri-generation (power, heat, cooling) that could utilize as much as 85% of the fossil energy.

When the simultaneous provision of power, process heat and space cooling or refrigeration is required in an industry and commercial building such as hotels, hospitals, office buildings and computer data centers, then tri-generation sytems is a good investment as it offers cost and energy saving to the building owner and the country.

Your energy technology expert has prepared an easy-to-use Excel model for preparing an energy balance for power, heat, chilled water (tri-generation) and co-generation (power, heat) system More »

Linear Programming (LP) Model for Cogeneration and Trigeneration – raising energy utilization efficiency

September 3rd, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Trigeneration and Cogeneration

Linear Programming (LP) Model for Cogeneration and Trigeneration – raising energy utilization efficiency

With the world running out of cheap fossil fuels (crude oil, coal, natural gas), and with continued rise of their prices in the international market, the world is exhausting all possible means of minimizing the impact of diminished supply and expensive cost of fossil fuels.

Among the response of the world’s leading economies as well as emerging economies is to raise energy utilization efficiency in power generation using cogeneration and trigeneration. When the simultaneous provision of electricity and process heat as well as cooling or refrigeration is desirable, the use of cogeneration and trigeneration will raise efficiency from the usual 33% of rankine thermal power systems (oil, gas, coal, biomass thermal) to 56% for cogeneration power systems (oil, gas, biomass) up to 80-90% with trigeneration.

Linear Programming (LP) and setting up LP models to optimize a number of processes and business models is an expertise close to the heart of the energy technology expert. As the LP model custodian of the Petron Bataan Refinery, he was involved in the re-structuring of the refinery’s cost minimization LP model to a profit maximization LP model that ensured that expensive intermediate process streams are blended to the higher valued products which a cost minimization model could not distinguish from.

New Summary Report Format for Project Finance Model for Feed-in Tariff

April 22nd, 2010 1 Comment   Posted in feed-in tariff

New Summary Report Format for Project Finance Model for Feed-in Tariff

A new and improved summary report format for the state-of-the-art project finance model has been developed and ready for implementation in all small scale, large scale and renewable energy project finance models.

Please refer to the sample format below and the author would appreciate receiving your valuable feedback.

Two formats are available: one for renewable energy projects without fuel requirement (mini-hydro, wind, solar) and those with fuels (biomass, cogen and other fossil-fired power plants such as diesel, coal, oil and natural gas).

This is to enable presentation of the plant heat rate and conversion efficiency from fuel energy to electrical energy as well as lube oil consumption rate.
