Title: LOW POLLUTANT EMISSION COGENERATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
A cogeneration system such as a Stirling engine cogeneration system for combined generation of heat and electrical power, comprises a radiative surface burner arranged across the combustion chamber and a pre-heater heat exchange arrangement for exchanging heat between hot exhaust gases and inlet air or pre-mixed inlet air and fuel. The temperature of combustion within the combustion chamber is lowered and heat is distributed evenly to the hot-end heat exchangers of the engine, reducing the production of thermal NOx from fuel combustion and therefore NOx emissions in the exhaust gases from the co-generation unit.
