Biogas-fired Combined Hybrid Heat and Power Plant

Deliverables

Technology demonstrator of the top-economic layout SOFC ready

Linked to task T4.5 Demonstration test rig of the top-economic layout and experimental results

Combustor prototype manufactured

Linked to task T2.1 Combustor, which will be developed using CFD tools, will be designed, manufactured and is ready for experimental characterisation using an atmospheric combustion test rig.

Operation of technology demonstrator of hybrid power plant of MGT and SOFC

D4.5 “Well tested technology demonstrator of hybrid power plant of MGT and SOFC” will be influenced by the delay of D4.2 and D4.3 as well because the data/characteristics from the separate test rigs is necessary to verify the concept of the technology demonstrator 12/19 Linked to task T4.4 Succesfully tested technoloy demonstrator of the biogas-fired hybrid power plant. Reason for update: D4.5: From our experience on the test rigs we do expect the commissioning for the real coupling also to be time-consuming. Instead of focussing on the detailed characterization (which implies long idle time to heat up the system) we prefer to demonstrate the operation in general. Furthermore, an additional T4.4.05 (“Conceptual design of real coupled hybrid power plant based on insights gained from the test rig characterizations.”) has been found necessary to do before setting up the real coupled system, which requires additional ressources that will be missing at the experimental state at the end.

Hybrid Power Plant emulator (real MGT with SOFC emulator) with optimised components

D4.2 “Hybrid Power Plant emulator _real MGT with SOFC emulator_ with optimised components” (delivery delay from May 2018 to November 2018 has been reported already) can probably not be accomplished before 03/19 Linked to task T4.1 The optimised components have been implemented into the hybrid power plant emulator

Upgraded hybrid system emulation rigs

Linked to task T3.1 The different emulation test rigs of DLR, UNIGE and the third party NETL are upgraded correspondently to the WP description

Optimised Electrical drive

Linked to task T2.2 A new concept of highly-efficient low-cost electrical drive for this MGT will be developed, which is directly coupled to the MGT. This involves designing the electrical power components – high-speed generator and high-frequency converter – for an optimal, highly-efficient CHP system in which the turbine, generator and converter operate close to their optimal working conditions.

Technology demonstrator having operated for continuous 100 hours

D4.6 “Technology demonstrator having operated for continuous 100 hours” will be influenced by the delay of D4.2 and D4.3 as well because the data/characteristics from the separate test rigs is necessary to verify the concept of the technology demonstrator 12/19 Linked to task T4.4 Detailed report of the continous operation of the demonstrator over 500 h. Reason for update: D4.6 and MS4 (connected with D4.6): The experience with the test rigs in the laboratory has led to the awareness that commissioning and even more operation of the test rigs is more work intensive than assumed at the beginning of the project. Trading the infrastructurial and project ressources against the scientific output, the priority is set to show the demonstration of the hybrid power plant and therefore the continuous operation is reduced to 100 hours.
