Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Project Finance Model – Compression Ignition (CI) Diesel Engine, Spark Ignition (SI) Gasoline Engine and Open Cycle GT (OCGT) Cogeneration Power Plants

This new model of a diesel reciprocating engine with waste heat recovery boiler is a cogeneration power plant that produces both electricity and heat/steam energy to raise energy utilization efficiency, and with two revenue streams, reduces significantly the cost of power and heat. For comparison, similar cogeneration plants using a gasoline reciprocating engine and open cycle (simple cycle) GT with waste heat recovery boiler is presented. More »

Piston or Reciprocating Engines

4-Stroke medium speed diesel engines are mainly used for power generation on small islands, in remote areas and for industrial purposes. Medium speed technology is competitive for intermediate and base load power plants up to 200 MW: high levels of reliability and availability, rapid construction and installation, competitive capital cost and delivery times, and total efficiency approaching 90% for CHP plants.
