Abstract

This work shows a methodology for analysis and management of hot water generation for industrial utilization from solar energy and cogeneration, the latter involving usage of a gas turbine or a natural gas fuelled engine. The methodology presented uses criteria that allow for evaluation of the power/heat ratio in the project of a water heating system. A computer program was developed to furnish a complete analysis of the energy system. A case study in an automotive industry is presented. The results show that solar energy and cogeneration using a natural gas fuelled engine are the most economic options.
