Cogeneration for Dummies
#17

This is not a TIMES question really, but a more general modelling one. As you can see from my previous posts, the data I have for cogeneration, ranges from "not very good to none”. In some cases, I don't have thermal capacity, thermal efficiency; absolutely no costing data includes steam production, etc.

So I am trying to decide what the best way to model it is. In the region I am modelling cogeneration represents 15% of total installed electricity capacity. And from that 15%, 20% goes to the grid, 80% is consumed in-house.

I am thinking of modelling CHP plants as power plants, because it is the only way to get results more or less reliable. And to create an industrial demand for the fuel that was going to be used if modelled as CHP (because when I tried modelling as CHP plants, the processes always consumed a lot less fuel than I was expecting them…based on my wonderful dataJ). And also I have to model  the  losses that were to happen in secondary generation/steam production.

I know it's the not the correct way, and I know steam is not going to have a value, but I know my cogeneration data is awful.

I could also take some cogeneration plants around the world and say, due to lack of data I assume they behave in the same way. And that more data needs to be made publicly available …

Any thoughts, anyone has any new ideas/thoughts about this scenario?

Thank you very much for reading and commenting
