Abstract: The research program foresees the development of a micro-cogeneration platform for the residential market dimensioned on an electric power of 1,5 kW.
The platform core is a micro-cogeneration unit that will be developed exploiting three different technologies:
· thermo-photovoltaic micro-cogeneration
· micro-cogeneration with internal combustion
· micro-cogeneration with Rankine cycle
The thermo-photovoltaic micro-cogeneration will be realised integrating a condensation boiler for residential applications with an innovative concentration system coupled to photovoltaic cells for the production of electric energy.
The micro-cogeneration with internal combustion, based on a more consolidated technology, will utilise an novel internal combustion motor of motorcycling origin and it will derive its innovative content precisely from the small electric size of the co-generator. Furthermore a three-generative option at high energetic efficiency will be developed, combining an endothermic motor to a heat pump, belonging to the vehicles field, and to an ejection system.
Finally the third technology to be developed will be represented by a micro-cogeneration with Rankine cycle, still integrated to a condensation boiler.
Every proposed technology will be characterised by a different ratio between electric efficiency and thermal efficiency.
