Enhanced flue gas condensation technology: Analysis of a 10 MW demonstration plant
2013 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
A study on the application of an active condensation system to a typical Austrian heating plant fed with wood chips is presented. The heating plant consists of two biomass boilers (5MW+3MW). The flue gas of both boilers is mixed and directed to a condensing heat exchanger for heat recovery. The heat gained in the heat recovery system is used for preheating the reflux. A heat pump was integrated to enhance the heat recovery. In this paper the integration of the heat pump is discussed. All parts are modeled to calculate the potential energy gain which is obtained and to assess the usefulness of the application of a heat pump from a thermodynamic point of view. In addition, an economic analysis was carried out to evaluate the payback time for the heat pump using the typical Austrian heat and electricity prices. Finally first measurement results are discussed.
