Internal Combustion Engine
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Internal combustion engine (ICE) generators consume fuel to produce power and can operate flexibly to provide flexibility services. This technology represents a set of identical generators rather than a single generator (unless n=1).
|ICE||rated_capacity||The maximum power generating capacity of a single generator in kW of electricity. Set this to 0 to optimally size the generator.|
|ICE||minimum_power||The minimum power a single generator can produce.|
|ICE||n||How many generators are included in the set of generators.|
|ICE||efficiency||This represents the conversion efficiency of fuel into electricity (heat rate) in MMBTU of fuel (HHV) per MWh of electricity.|
|ICE||fuel_type||This is the type of fuel used by the ICE generator. Either "liquid", "gas", or "other".|
