Microturbine CHP in Microgrids 

11-08-2017 16:24

Summary

Small-scale CHP systems are increasingly being incorporated into microgrid designs due to their operattonal flexibility, ability to baseload, high efficiency, and reliability.  Microturbine-based CHP systems have beein installed in several high profile microgrids in recent years, such as a building-scale microgrid at a data center in Minnesota.  A 600kW microturbine CCHP system provides power, hot water and chilled water 24/7/365 and is the backbone of a complex energy system also comprised of solar PV, small wind, energy storage and backup.  This presentation will cover a brief explanation of microturbine technology and will discuss the lessons learned during this multi-year project.
