Abstract:The µCHP is expected as the successor of
the conventional high-efficiency boiler producing next to
heat also electricity with a comparable overall efficiency.
A µCHP appliance saves money and reduces greenhouse
gas emission.
An additional functionality of the µCHP is using the
appliance as a backupgenerator in case of a power outage.
The µCHPcould supply the essential loads, the heating and
reduce the discomfort up to a certain level. This requires
modifications on the µCHP appliance itself as well as on
the domestic electricity infrastructure. Furthermore some
extra hardware and a control algorithm for load balancing
are necessary.
Our load balancing algorithm is supposed to start and
stop the µCHP and switch off loads if necessary. The first
simulation results show that most of the electricity usage
is under the maximum generation line, but to reduce the
discomfort an electricity buffer is required.
