We have developed a highly efficient boiler system using the 930 cc diesel engine. In this system, the co-generation concept is utilized in that the electric power is produced by the generator connected to the diesel engine, and waste heat is recovered from both the exhaust gases and the engine itself by the finned tube and shell & tube heat exchangers. A specially designed secondary combustor is installed at the engine outlet in order to completely reignite the unburned fuel from the diesel engine, thereby improving a system’s efficiency as well as reducing air pollution due to exhaust gases. It is found that the total efficiency (thermal efficiency plus electric power generation efficiency) of this system reaches maximum 94.4% which is about 20% higher than the typical diesel engine boiler system currently being used worldwide.
