Field Trial Background

Two CHP2 demonstration units were installed in January 2016. One unit at EWE's state-of-the-art training centre in Oldenburg, with the second unit located at Delmenhorst, Germany. The objectives of the field trial were aimed at not only proving the systems reliability, but also allowing EWE to further develop their control strategy for the management of Distributed Generation appliances.

Field Trial Achievements

  • Validated the remote monitoring capabilities of the CHP2 unit, such as remote start-up and shut-down and fault diagnosis
  • External validation of the CHP2 unit operating on European natural gas, electrical grid connection and power export according to European regulations
