A methodology is proposed for the techno-economic assessment of a biomass power plant. The economic aspects of the assessment involve determining the economically optimal size of a given biomass power plant depending on resource related costs and, in turn, the economic viability of the project. The technical aspects of the assessment check for the possibility that, in the given distribution network, the economically optimal plant might cause breaches of limits on line flow, voltage, fault… CONTINUE READING
