Abstract

In this study the performances of small cogeneration power plants fed by biomass and based on conventional and advanced technologies are presented. Three system configurations have been considered and analyzed. They are characterized by: a) a biomass gasification (G) unit, based on down-draft technology; b) a power unit, based on the SOFC technology or on the micro gas turbine (MGT) technology or on a hybrid configuration SOFC-MGT; c) a thermal recovery unit. The energy analysis of the proposed power plants has been conducted by using thermochemical/thermodynamic models able to study the integrated systems and each unit in terms of operating and performance parameters.
