Hi, Antti, and K_Poncelet I read the first question but wasn't in a position to answer with certainty unless I studied it further. I have been thinking for a long time that a general modelling forum...

Post: RE: Integration of Two Seperate Models

I haven't had the need to integrate 2 models myself, but I would think that if the two models have the same periods, commodities, etc.; then you could do it by: 1- Run each of the models. 2- Look f...

Post: Milestone Years-period length

Hi, I have a question regarding the specification of Milestone Years. I'd like to calibrate the model data in years 2001 and 2005, and then have results for 2010, 2020, 2030…etc, every 1...

usually, the university tells you how much time you have to complete your research. So, I guess, you are concerned if you are going to be able to finish in time...That's personal, it depends on how ...

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...

Post: Cogeneration for Dummies

If I model it as you have just suggested, then, should I change ACT_EFF(NRG)=0.77 (0.454 electrical efficiency + 0.316 thermal efficiency) for ACT_EFF=0.454?  I am asking this because the fuel ...

Post: Cogeneration for Dummies

I thought that I had to convert the steam capacity (210 MW) in some way, that I couldn't just add it to the electrical, but I guess I was wrong, I just have to input (0.21+0.12) GW as total capa...

Hi, Antti,as you said, the CHP I am trying to model is a CCGN+HRGS. The installed capacity is only electrical capacity, so when I model it as backpressure, the model (naturally) invests in new capacit...

Post: Cogeneration for Dummies

I see my misunderstanding now. I thought that because the condensing CHP generated only electricity I could use that efficiency for the whole process. Yet it should be clear that I cannot just negate ...
