Abstract:The main scope of the internship is a financial estimation of Host’s projects (mainly wood fired CHP) on different locations. The project result will be used as a tool by the company’s agents to determine quickly and accurate whether the project is feasible and allows them to evaluate potential customers. Different configurations and capacities of CHP power plants corresponding to fuel consumption and cycle efficiencies will be implemented for a better approach to the final result. The outer layer will be economical, which allows the agent to make a quick estimation of the investment level taking as input variable such as electricity, heat and steam prices. An additional aim of the internship is to provide with technical knowledge and working experience the participant. This experience as well as the knowledge which have been taken during the internship can help the intern for a smoothly transition on the working environment later on. To conclude, the financial estimation will be shown on a format excel sheet which the agents can fill in with respect to the customer needs. For the tool construction the following approach has been applied: - Understanding the working theory of the possible installations. - Data collection from HoSt database. - Technical approach and calculations based on input parameters. - Financial calculation, analysis and evaluation of the results. - Optimization of plant capacity based on heat demand curve.
