Cogeneration units or CHP (Combined Heat and Power Generation) units produce heat and power with the cogeneration principle: Highly efficient, right on site and without transport losses. In contrast to large power plants they can be turned on and off within a few seconds or regulated to partial load. This option to adjust power production within seconds grants them – besides the outstanding efficiency – an increasingly important role in the energy mix to balance out the fluctuations of renewable power sources.
Core piece of the CHP unit is a combustion engine which powers an alternator. The electrical power produced is consumed on site (fully or partially) and/or fed into the public mains. The heat evoked during the combustion process is recovered in a system of heat exchangers and can be used for heating, warm water supply, process heat and more applications.
