    Abstract

    A theoretical investigation of the economics of cogeneration supplemented by warm-water storage and subjected to a three-step price schedule for electricity, has been carried out. Some general guidelines can be derived, but no simple design rules, such as those for cogeneration plants operating with a two-step schedule, seem to govern the design of such plants subjected to the new conditions. Simulation studies have been initiated in order to arrive at sufficiently accurate optimal store dimensions and operational strategy. The results from simulation studies which give the store as a function of cogeneration plant size relative to the total heat demand in the geographical region supplied by the plant are shown
