5 Central Station Vs. Distributed Generation Economies of scale in central station coal or nuclear generation: Basic plant cost, turbines, operators Single plant: less than 1,000 MW Single site: 3,000 MW? DG: No transmission, greater reliability, combined heat & power Efficiency: 100%? Vs. 35$% Fuel costs: Coal vs. natural gas or diesel

6 Transmission Costs At $2-8 million/mile, transmission has high capital costs & adds to delivered cost Line losses 2% trans. 8% distribution Super critical coal plant: $2800/kw Capital: 4.8 ¢/kWh, fuel & O&M: 3 ¢/KWh Total generation: 7.8 ¢/KWh New transmission adds 0.3-8 ¢/KWh Total delivered: 8.1- 15.8 ¢ / KWh

7 Natural Gas– with CHP Capital cost: $600/KW, 35% efficient => 9750 BTU/KWh (6,000 h/yr) Natural gas: $10/MMBTU => 9.5 ¢/KWh Total cost: 11.5 ¢/KWh If 100% of energy used, 35% for elec. & 65% for heat, if elec. worth 10 ¢/kWh, get 102.5 KWh for 1 MM BTU: value $10.25 + 6.5 = $16.75. Cost $10 + 2.04 = $12.04 Cogen adds $4.71 /MCF gas Breakeven = 27.5% of waste heat used. MMBTU: 1 Million British Thermal Unit MCF: Thousand Cubic Feet

Details of the modeling assumptions can be found in Hisham Zerriffi, Hadi Dowlatabadi, and Alex Farrell, "Incorporating Stress in Electric Power System Reliability Models," Proceedings of the IEEE , in review for a special issue.
