See the introductory post for this model here.
This is v0.3 of the open source CHP feasibility and optimization model I am developing. The model is setup with some dummy data. This model is in beta – it is a work in progress!
If you want to get it working for your project all you need to do is change:
- heat & power demands (Model : Column E-G)
- prices (Model : Column BD-BF)
- CHP engine (Input : Engine Library).
You can also optimize the operation of the CHP using a parametric optimization VBA script (Model : Column BQ).
If you would like to get involved in working on this project please get in touch.
Thanks for reading!
