Thermodynamic Balance of the Micro Scale Power Generator Using a Gasifier/Spark Engine System.

R.V. Andrade & E.E. Silva Lora
The aim of this paper is to present an analysis about the tests performed in one micro power generator facility, composed of a double stage fixed bed gasifier and a spark engine. The results obtained from the tests are assessed and the best operation point is discussed. Parameters which must be used for the design and scale up of this system, such as, equivalence ratio, gas generated by unit of fuel, gas energy content by...
