Energy Conservation: CHP System-Cooling/heating and Power Using Caterpillar Power Generation Equipment & BROAD Heat Recovery Chillers


With a fine Blend of Engineering & Commercial qualification and proper statistical control he is able to lead Sales team and has generated record Sales and gain customers Satisfaction for several consecutive years. Caterpillar has around 12,000/2600 MW installation is Pakistan.

FOOD FOR THOUGHTS

With the changing business dynamics and scares resources today's BUZZ WORD among professionals is "Energy Conservation". Under-developed countries like Pakistan with Shortage of around 7,000 MW Electric Power should now think not to only utilize Alternate energy sources to generate Power but has to focus on recovering waste heat generated from installed Power Plants. This can be done by effective utilization of exhaust & Jacket water heat to generate cooling . This can be used for district cooling on Macro basis or if recovery is from self Power generation units of industrial Plant and commercial buildings the cooling can be used in Process or building Comfort Air-conditioning respectively. This can be done by using BROAD Non - Electric Heat Recovery Absorption Chillers and we can save substantial electric load on the Plant as Electric chillers will be replace by Non electric chillers and operating cost will be reduced by around 85~90%.

As we know from law of thermodynamics that

"Energy can be neither created nor can be destroyed but it can be changed from One Form to Another"

To explain my point of view i am developing a case study for your easy understanding, let us assume a installation of 1.7 MW Power Plant (i.e, Caterpillar G3520 C genset) used to Power a commercial building of 240,000 sqft. If they want to install central Air-Conditioning system of 350 USRT to cool 105,000 sqft space by using water cooled electric chiller additional power of 385 ekW will be required to operate compressor of the chiller. We Allied can provide cost effective solution to customer by recovering waste heat of installed CAT G3520 C to generator cooling.

Typical fuel used to generate 1.7 MW Power from Gas genset is 517 m3/hr at the cost of 10.92 per meter cube i.e, monitory terms fuel input is Rs.5,646 per hr.

Heat Recovery Potential from 60% of waste heat is around 55% i.e, from Exhaust of genset and Jacket water of genset. This means we can save Rs.3, 105 per hr if we can utilize this heat.. Total saving per year will be Rs. 15.5 Million when operating hrs are 5,000 per annum. …
