Design Considerations: Gas Storage

Design Considerations: Gas Storage

Gas storage is another important factor in the AD system. During the course of the day gas production varies based on many factors, diet fed to the animals, temperature, substrates added, day to day changes in farm operations, etc. The ability to store gas and consume the gas when desired is very important. Without variable gas storage gas use must equal gas production. This is a very limiting factor when sizing the equipment for the gas use. Another important factor in gas storage is the ability to use the gas when rates are higher. Many of today’s power purchase contracts offer premium rates during peak periods.
