Optimisation of cogeneration systems in a competitive market environment (OSCOGEN)

Objective

The efficient operative cogeneration system supports the energy and environmental policy objectives of the EU. Additionally this helps to increase the competitiveness of CHP systems and hence the share of environmentally sound combined heat and Power production. In view of this background the aim of the project is to develop an optimisation tool for the cost and resource efficient operation of CHP systems and to apply it within a case study in cooperation with a utility. This tool will be based on stochastic optimisation and genetic algorithms.
Compared to existing approaches this new approach promises to find faster more accurate solutions for the operation of CHP systems in a competitive energy market given the fact that uncertainties are adequately taken into consideration.
