Wolf Power Systems - In-house electricity and heat generation

More than 30 years experience in combined heat and power
  • A combined heat and power unit essentially consists of a combustion engine and a generator combined with heat exchangers. 

    Natural gas, sludge gas and biogas are likely sources of primary energy. The combustion engine, a gas-burning four stroke engine, drives a generator. The generator converts part of the energy used into electrical power. The electricity is used in the consumer network or is given directly to the power supply company. 

    Wolf BHKW units have the same essential structure over the full range of powers: a frame constructed of steel sections forms the heat exchanging unit with the connections for the heating supply and return lines, exhaust and fuel.

  • The unit comprises a plate heat exchanger that takes heat from the engine's cooling water, a shell and tube heat exchanger that exchanges heat with the exhaust, and a flue gas cleaning unit.

    A combined heat and power unit can achieve an efficiency of about 90%, meaning that 90% of the primary energy is converted into electricity and heat. If the radiated heat can be included, the efficiency can even reach about 95%. The efficiency of a conventional power station is between 30 and 40%. The advantages are clear.
