Heat storage (buffer storage)

Heat storages (also called buffer or buffer storage) can improve the operation and profitability of the CHP unit by absorbing its surplus heat and ceding it when needed. This way, the CHP unit can keep running even if there is temporarily too little or no heat demand. On the other hand, it doesn’t need to start up or add the boiler right away when the heat demand has a short peak.

Moreover, the deployment of heat storages allows for a stronger focus on the electricity demand. Our superordinate control MiniManager PRO can for example perform an extended storage management which deliberately empties the heat storage before expected electricity peaks so the CHP unit can then run at full load during the peak.

Configuration options

Emergency power operation

More power supply safety: Our CHP units can be equipped to provide emergency power in case of a mains failure or blackout.

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

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.
