Micro-Cogeneration Including the Conversion Of Chemical Energy of Biomass to Electric Energy and the Low Potential Heat
This article deals with combined production of heat and electricity for small premises, such as households, where energy consumption is around few kilowatts. This proposal of micro cogeneration unit uses as a heat source an automatic burner for combustion of wood pellets. Construction of an equipment for the heat transport can be designed using different basic ways of heat transfer. Electricity is produced by the two-stroke steam engine and the generator.
