Combined Heat and Power (CHP, Cogeneration) microgrids increase Energy Efficiency and Reliability. They also allow our customers to generate heat and power on-site. Addition of heat recovery increases typical electrical output efficiencies in the range of 30% to 42% to the overall CHP system efficiency of up to 83%.
Natural gas, biogas, bi-fuel or diesel driven generator sets can be combined with APT EnerStore Battery Storage Systems. APT Grid Isolation CO-gen Island Support Generators, solar panels and other renewable sources of power can also be combined. As a result, this creates sustainable and ultra-reliable microgrids to meet specific customer needs or objectives. APT Automatic Paralleling and Load Transfer switchgear controls and protects natural gas, bio-gas, bi-fuel, diesel, energy storage and renewables driven generation.
Modern natural gas and biogas engines are designed to optimize the fuel efficiency and emissions compliance. This comes at a cost of poor transient response when operated separately from the utility grid. This makes most of these units ineffective when black start capability or island operation is required. APT Grid Isolation Co-gen Island Support Generators and APT EnerStore Battery Storage Systems allow for the high-efficiency natural gas and biogas-powered engine-generators to be used for island and black start operation.
