The 4 Most Common Causes Of CHP Plant Engine Misfires

Combined heat and power (CHP) reciprocating gas engines require gas air and a spark to combust and rotate the engine to a constant speed, Slower acceleration and shaking during acceleration indicate that your engine is misfiring. The engine may also stall or lose power, especially when you have faulty spark plugs.

What Consequences Can A Sudden Loss Of CHP Plant Engine Power Have?

A combined heat and power (CHP) plant engine uses various fuels and an ignition system to generate electricity and heat simultaneously. Compared to other stationary engines, CHP achieves efficiencies of over 80% by reclaiming heat that you could otherwise lose, making it among the cleanest available sources of power using hydrocarbon fuels.

How To Avoid Or Minimise CHP Plant Downtime

The commercial sector consumes about 75% of electricity, but industries have nine times more existing applications for combined heat and power (CHP) technologies in use today. CHP plant downtime is a costly inconvenience as it reduces efficiency and leads to lower productivity, translating to losses and delays. CHP plant faults arise from various factors, including misfires and worn parts. You can avoid or minimise plant downtime through regular performance management, replacing faulty parts immediately, and continuously training your operators.

What Are The Most Common CHP Plant Engine Faults?

The combined heat and power (CHP) plant engine uses energy-efficient technology to generate electricity and capture the heat generated, which would otherwise go to waste. Similar to other intricate machinery, the CHP plant engine is prone to faults, In this article, we discuss some of the most common faults technicians can check and repair.
