The mobile cogeneration unit (MCU) consists of two gas turbines and one heat recovery steam generator mounted in a trailer with standard dimensions to supply 3 MW of electricity at ISO conditions and 14,000 to 28,000 pounds per hour of superheated steam depending on duct burner duty and steam conditions. A computational model using Thermoflex software was developed to adjust Test Cell measurements with it. The purpose of this model is to predict MCU performance in different sites of implementation. Some field measurements in Test Cell and other sites are compared with model results showing very good approach.
