Equipment for emergency power operation

Our compact CHP units can be equipped to run in island operation, meaning that they can provide a power busbar with defined consumers (e.g. elevators, sprinklers, pumps, IT system, lighting etc.) with emergency power in case of a mains failure or blackout.

If the CHP unit is idle when the mains failure occurs, it starts automatically with the battery unit and supplies the emergency busbar in several loadsteps. The full load is available after ca. 30 seconds.

If the CHP unit is already running in mains parallel operation it automatically separates from the mains and seamlessly starts to supply the emergency busbar. After the mains returns, it seamlessly switches to mains parallel operation or – if e.g. no CHP heat is needed – starts the CHP shutdown process.

To provide this emergency power option also in times with no (or too little) heat demand, an emergency cooler must be installed. Also multiple CHP unit schemes can be equipped with emergency power function: Our largest emergency power scheme contains four CHP units with 1,6 MW of electric power in total.

Configuration options

Condensing heat exchanger

Condensing heat exchangers can increase the thermal power of of our CHP units by up to 15 % - without increasing their fuel consumption.

Configuration options

Containerized CHP unit

We design the container for the outdoors placement of the CHP unit by your requests - inside and outside.

Configuration options

Steam generation from the exhaust heat

Together with an external steam generation heat exchanger the CHP unit can produce steam from its exhaust heat.

Configuration options

Hot cooling
with 95/80 °C

The heat of a 'hot cooler' compact CHP unit can e.g. be used to power an absorption chiller for trigeneration.

Configuration options

Mobile CHP unit

Our CHPmobile achieves high utilization rates by operating in different sites, e.g. school in winter and public outdoor pool in summer.

Configuration options

Zero feed-in control

The zero feed-in control can make effectively stop power from being fed into the public mains by regulating the CHP unit's power production.

Configuration options

Heat storage (buffer)

CHP surplus heat can be stored in a heat storage and ceded when it's needed to achieve a smoother and longer CHP utilization rate.

Configuration options

Virtual power plant

The SOKRATHERM interface can communitate with the systems of different balancing power providers at lower cost.
