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.

Combined Heat & Power (Cogeneration)

The file (313 KB) will cover the following topics:

Combined Heat & Power (Cogeneration)

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the simultaneous generation of electricity and steam (or heat) in a single power plant. It has been long used by industries and municipalities that need process steam or heat as well as electricity. CHP or cogeneration is not usually used by large utilities which tend to produce electricity only. It is advisable only for industries and municipalities if they can produce electricity cheaper or more conveniently; otherwise, buy from the utility instead.

In theory, CHP provides the most efficient use of energy resources, often utilizing up to 90% of the heat energy of the fossil fuel. In practice, while the efficiency of entire process is recognized, its application has been limited.

Topics – Combined Heat & Power

  • Combined Heat & Power, Its Uses and History
  • Basic Principle of Combined Heat & Power (CHP)
  • CHP or Cogeneration Plant Efficiency
  • Efficiency of Separate Generation
  • Types of Cogeneration Cycles
  • Other CHP Technologies
