A model based, energy focused, quasi-stationary waste heat driven, internal combustion engine (ICE) centred design methodology for cogeneration (heat and electricity) systems is presented. The developed parametric model could be used for system sizing, performance evaluation, and optimization. This paper presents a systematic approach to model the behaviour of the CHP system using heat recovery prediction methods. The modular, physics based modelling environment shows the power flow between the system components, with a special emphasis on the ICE subsystems, parameter identification, and model validation.
