eQUEST gas turbine output data

1 post / 0 new

Hi All,

I'm trying to model a recip engine for chp in eQUEST for a hospital. I have created a 900 kW gas turbine electric generator and connected it to the hot water loop for waste heat recovery. The electric meter it's tied to is tracking cogeneration based on the electric load.

When viewing the SIM file, the data page for the Gas Turbine shows monthly peaks greater than the capacity of the generator.  I've attached an image of the file.

Am I reading the output file incorrectly? Does the Elec Load column refer to the entire building? Also the RCV ENERGY column is the recoverable energy from the system, right?

Any help is appreciated.
