Request if anyone could direct me to some literature material on biomass gas engine technology which will help develop my understanding of gas engines for biomass. I would like to find out things like typical key operating characteristics for this technology:
- minimum operating level (% rated capacity)
- maximum up / down ramp rates (% rated capacity/min)
- minimum up time / down time (minutes or hours)
- startup time from cold, warm and hot (minutes or hours)
- typical efficiency
- CO2 emissions intensity (tCO2/MWh)
- SOx, NOx, Particulate emissions (PP10) (kg/MWh)
- Water consumption (ML/MWh)
- planned maintenance requirements (days/year)
- forced outage rates (%).
- typical capacity factor
Are there standards available for gas engines.

Kind Regards,
Krishnan Nair
