Block-Type Thermal Power Station (BTTP)
Block-Type Thermal Power Station (BTTP)
The Block-Type Thermal Power Station at the Department of Energy and Environmental Technology of the TU Munich

A block-type thermal power station (also called block-unit heating power plant) consists of a stationary motor which, according to the principle of power-heat coupling, or cogeneration, produces electric current and heat. The effectiveness of a BTTP is based on its use of waste heat, which in other power stations goes unused as it is discharged in a river. The high Efficiency of BTTP’s makes considerable energy savings possible. BTTP’s are fuelled by natural gas, oil, wood, as well as by methyl ester or rapeseed. Unlike solar technology, BTTP’s don’t only rely on Renewable Energy Sources, yet they do play an important role as far as optimal use of fossil fuels is concerned.
