Model Review • RETScreen CHP module • Thermoflex – Thermoflow.com • Neither of the above model utilizes or attempts to estimate the hourly demand pattern considering the conditions such as regional, sectoral difference of categories in detail. • Even when the research is done on hourly basis, the analysis tends to discuss TLP(Typical Load Profile) instead of considering all the related variables affecting the hourly demand of heat and power. • We will review the above existing models as examples and will try to discuss the importance of modelling CHP with hourly demand pattern with proper selection of operational strategy in its economic feasibility test.
Thermoflow, Inc. WHAT IS GT PRO? GT PRO is a highly automated system design tool – a heat balance program specifically intended for design of gas turbine combined cycle power plants and cogeneration systems. • Use GT PRO to explore and design combined cycles, cogeneration systems, and simple cycle gas turbine power plants. • In combination with PEACE (Plant Engineering and Cost Estimator), GT PRO provides engineering details and cost estimation. • GT PRO performs design-point calculations only – use GT MASTER for simulations of part loads or other off-design conditions.
Inputs – General Arrangement The Navigator column displays the major input topics. Topics in GT PRO are arranged vertically, and follow a hierarchy, progressing from top to bottom. Selections made in an upper (earlier) topic will condition the selections available in lower (later) topics. Tabs are used as necessary to subdivide topics; green tabs include PEACE inputs Every entry box has been initialized with a reasonable value. You never have to fill an empty box. Instead you edit just those that are of concern to you, trusting the others to have been logically selected. The Guidance window includes a description of the presently selected input
PEACE Schematics Select from the list to see dimensioned layouts of the site and of plant equipment.
PEACE Equipment Data For each of the equipment categories, selectable by the tabs visible here, these tables indicate size, weight, and nameplate specifications.
PEACE Cost Report Project Summary is shown. Tabs give individual breakdown of costs. Note the two columns: Reference and Estimated Cost. Click on Cash Flow to see a pro forma financial projection.
PEACE Cash Flow This Financial Summary table displays the overall results of the pro forma Cash Flow projection detailed in the subsequent tab. In very little time, you can use these results to explore the influence of design decisions on plant economic performance.

Hourly Load Pattern Analysis by Prof. Chun-Geol Moon, Department of Economics, Hanyang Univ.
Previous Load Forecast Methods • For the calculation of each load profile, use the area space, usage category information, related Energy use pattern to find the peak load (Heat, Cool, Power) • Example: Heat Load Calculation • Heating Space Calculation = Space(m2) x Heat Demand Dev. Rate(%) x Heat area ratio(%) • Total Peak Load of Heat Calculated = Heating Space(m2) x Unit Heat Requrement • Final Peak Load of Heat expected = Total Peak Load of Heat x prob. Concurrent Load /(1-loss(%))
Hourly Load Curve Forecast • Forecast should be made for Hourly basis (8760 Hour data to be generated) • TLP of Heat and Power – Region(Temperature, Humidity), Usage(23 diff. Categories), Size(eg. Heating Area) • 7 different weekdays, holidays, Special Holidays such as New years day, Thanks giving Holidays, Seasonal Patterns should be considered. <Data for Heat, Power Load Pattern Estimation> • Heat Load Data: • Anyang Area (Household: Nov.1, 2003-Sept.30, 2005) -156 points • Pucheon (Household: Nov. 30, 2003-Sept. 30, 2005) – 150 points • Data with missing information should have been dropped out of analysis • Power Load Data: • Data Managed by KDN (Korea Electric Power Data Network) : Typical Load profile for given usage, region is estimated using 15min. Frequency data • Current form of data – 4 separate files for each month. Read 1st file to find a company’s data and do this for other files consecutively • Data matching problems : some missing, Some of arbitrary samples were chosen for analysis
Hourly Heat Load Curve Forecast • Dependent Variable : Hourly Heat Load data gathered from 306 different points of machine rooms – Conversion to Typical Household Heat Demand needs special consideration. • Explanatory Variables ∘ Temperature(C0): -34.7 ～ 35.9 ∘ Humidity(%): 0 ～ 93 ∘ 12 Months x 24 Hour Pattern ∘ Weekdays with its coincidence of other holidays • Holidays are categorized differently • Holiday during weekdays, New Years day, Thanks giving Holidays, etc. ∘ Heating Space
Hourly Load Curve Forecast: Model • The Multi-level Model or the Hierarchical Model <Assumptions for the Model> [the first level] : the level-1 fixed parameters : the level-1 explanatory variables associated with fixed parameters : the level-1 random parameters (random variation over the households is more important) : the level-1 explanatory variables associated with random parameters : the level-1 random error terms [the second level] : the level-2 fixed parameters : the level-2 explanatory variables : the (subject-specific) level-2 random error terms Source: C.G.Moon(2006)
Hourly Load Curve Forecast: Model • the linear mixed-effects model <Assumptions for the Model>
Estimation : GLS (MLE) • Theoretical Estimation Method
Problems Encountered in Estimation Process • For KDN data analysis, the data has 15 min. frequencies. For the analysis of such panel data, we need a workstation size computer system. • We used a computer equipped with Windows XP Home Edition (32 bit) with 4GbRAM. Additional Hard Drive of 1 terra byte has been provided for data matching. • For our econometric analysis, we use GAUSS. Gauss Engine is also used for Foreign language interface with C++. • GAUSS (Windows version) used here cannot utilize virtual memory. It only utilized extended or expanded memory which is only a part of physical RAM. (Before 1999, GAUSS could use virtual memory and it was possible to analyze big data set.) • Due to the system limitation, we had to select some samples arbitrarily, therefore, the result could not be argued to have a characteristics representative for all such cases.
