The article is a sum of compound experiences. It describes the behaviour of renewable energy sources that can work with combined heat and power technology in a conventional energy system. It presents views on organisational issues of distributed energy, with consideration of future system limitations from the perspective of the energy system’s functioning. There are opinions here on the conditions of renewable energy sources and distributed generation in a new idea of power industry. Particular attention is paid to issues related to the impact of distributed generation and renewable energy sources on the functioning of a centralised energy system.
The publication presents an opinion on the use of distributed combined energy generation techniques in power industry. The article presents the developed experience and views on the idea of using renewable energy sources in a conventional energy system. The views take into consideration the synergy of centralised and distributed energy systems, and accentuate organisational needs that adapt structurally the functioning of distributed generation to the standards of a conventional system. The results of the study include characteristics of energy production costs in a model gas turbine as well as the developed functions and ways of functioning distributed energy systems. In order to adapt the distributed generation to the idea of a centralised system, a share of cogeneration and hybrid systems as well as of energy sources of various origins is adopted.
The paper presents accumulated experiences and conclusions on renewable energy sources and distributed generation operating in the structures of the power system. The worked out conclusions on the influence of cogeneration and different origins of green energy sources take into consideration the need to adapt new distributed generation systems to function in the conventional power industry. The paper includes outlook on prosumer energy industry and emphasises the ways of managing micro energy systems. Combined energy production, with the participation of renewable sources, is reviewed in the paper, and the problems and possible solutions resulting in the multidimensional energy industry are discussed.
The article is dedicated to the production of energy from renewable energy sources. It discusses the block architecture of a power microsystem designed to work in cogeneration. In the architecture of the CHP plant, it is assumed that the basic elements needed to create an autonomous energy system are used. In the assumptions, the microsystem's operation in the mode connected to the network, so-called ON-GRID, is considered. The article also reviews selected distributed technologies. It addresses the use of modern energy microtechnologies for the needs of distributed energy. An overview of arguments on the reorganisation of the conventional energy system is also offered.
The paper presents an opinion on the use of distributed cogeneration technologies in the power industry. It offers worked out experiences and views on the idea of using renewable energy sources in the conventional power industry. The effects of the work done are analysed arguments concerning the use of cogeneration and renewable energy sources in the micropower industry, and developed ways of the functioning of the distributed energy generation system. The publication presents conclusions and simulation results of the criterial work of a micropower system containing in its structure renewable energy sources and a cogeneration unit.
