Abstract

The FC4home project aims to facilitate the successful deployment of micro combined heat and power fuel cells in the residential sector to the benefit of both society and environment. The breakthrough of these technologies relies of course on technological progress but depends also to a considerable degree on large scale support schemes which should promote the takeoff of the technologies by reducing the total costs -investment and operation- for the owner of the unit.
Workpackage 5 aims to generate physical data like consumption, production and generation of the devices in a household equipped with a microCHP. This output data set will be provided to Workpackage 4 which needs it to assess the economic performance of several mCHP operational support schemes.
A previous report described the first model used to tackle the case of end consumers and traditional energy company control. It specifies also the extensions needed to implement the requirement of more advanced control strategies in the case of integration in virtual power plants.
This second report reminds shortly the different ownership cases and related control strategies, explaining the basic principles and then discussing the physical results obtained in the simulation specified specifically for France (or Portugal) and Denmark.
