Abstract

The increasing share of fluctuating energy generation causes new challenges in the power grids. The demand for flexible power plants is increasing. Solid biomass fueled combined heat and power (CHP) plants are able to get modified into dispatchable power plants. In this paper, boundaries for this operation mode are summarized and several measures to achieve a flexible power generation in biomass CHP plants are concluded. The integration of high temperature storage system for buffering the plants steam seems to be the most promising, however the least investigated option. The tasks and necessary features of such storage systems were investigated and a review of available technologies and systems for the storage of steam made.
