The database has a modular design set-up and views a project primarily from the perspective of the energy supply for an object. Therefore, all components of a production plant must be registered – in addition to the CHP plant eg the boiler too. Even an entry of EEG projects that will primarily generate power such as biogas plants with no external heat use and in future also wind or PV systems can be registered.
With multi-module CHP plants, the CHP modules must be entered individually. Identical data for modules of registered data will be automatically recognised. In addition, the CHP project database is linked to the cogeneration module database to facilitate the entry of technical data.
A project creator can choose whether to enter a single boiler or a total amount of installed boilers.
The registration of co-generation plants with combination systems such as electric heat pumps that utilise waste heat from the CHP sound insulation capsule will be possible as well as the representation of a combination of an engine CHP with an exhaust regenerate power z. B. by ORC system.
Combinations of different energy sources such as. a CHP plant withsolar thermal system and a condensing boiler are recorded in a structured form and can be identified by the database.
The structured and modular database structure will provide excellent search functionality. The database will make “special cases” searchable-. So for example, by “co-generation plants in connection with solar thermal systems” or “ORC plants engine-CHP an utilisation of exhaust steam”.
