Model-based Assessment of the Role of Natural Gas-based Micro-CHP in Residential Energy Supply Systems

Tekena Fubara, Franjo Cecelja and Aidong Yang,    Dept. of Chemical and Process Engineering, University of Surrey, Guildford GU2 7XH, UK

Abstract

Mathematical modelling and optimization of the natural gas based Distributed Energy Supply System (DESS), both at the building level and the overall energy supply network level was carried out for three types of micro-CHP – solid oxide fuel cells, Stirling engines, internal combustion engines – and for two operating strategies – cost-driven and primary energy-driven. The modelling framework has particularly allowed the quantification of the impact of micro-CHP on the total primary energy consumption ...
