Tech/Engineering - Energy / Power Generation / CHP (combined heat and power)
English term or phrase: Heat Input Rate (LHV)
I am currently working on a technical sprecifications- data sheet for an engine-generator package including a stirling engine. The data sheet is a list of specifications concerning the use of low energy gas. As far as I understood it "heat input rate" refers to the energy content the gas needs to contain in order to generate power. LHV stands for "unterer Heizwert" (Hu) and is rated here with 13,092 kJ/kWh (12,409 Btu/kWh). My ideas so far were "Brennstoffenergieeinsatz"- "Energieeinsatz"...but I'm not happy with it...any suggestions?

Notes to answerer
Asker: Das klingt sehr gut- vielen Dank schonmal. Allerdings wird die Feuerungsleistung immer nur in KW angegeben, demnach fehlt mir hier der Bezug- sprich: heat input = feuerungsleistung, heat input RATE ( in kJ/kWh ) = ?

Asker: Hallo Hr. Menz, Ich bin leider noch etwas unbeholfen hier bei Proz und werde die Frage auf Hinweis eines Mitglieds noch einmal mit Punktevergabe reinstellen. Wollte Ihnen nur Bescheid geben, falls Sie noch einmal antworten (und Punkte sammeln) möchten...
