Abstract:Abstract: Rising energy prices and the greenhouse effect gave a boost to the innovation of energy saving technologies. One of these technologies is microCHP, a replacement of a boiler producing heat and electricity. We investigated whether it is possible to use a microCHP to decrease discomfort during a power cut by supplying the most important appliances, creating a so called Islanded House. Simulations showed that the discomfort can be decreased when also a battery is added. A prototype is used to justify the assumptions made for the simulation. Finally, one of the control algorithms used in the simulations is implemented as controller for the prototype. Based on these results we conclude that it is possible to create an Islanded House and to decrease the discomfort significantly.
