7224 Distributed Generation

Distributed Generation (DG) is emerging as the generation of heat and power (CHP) through relatively small distributed units (from 25 MW to a few kilowatts). Typically, these are smaller, self contained, power generation systems located close to, adjacent to, or within the boundaries of a CHP user or consumer facility. Typical fuels include natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), kerosene and diesel fuel. DG plants may or may not be interconnected to a utility grid. Earlier DG systems have also been known as packaged cogeneration units.

This section focuses on current developments of the following DG technologies:

• Combustion or Gas Turbines

• Reciprocating Engines
