Abstract

The evaluation of utilizing corn cob as a primary energy resource for electricity generation in Northern Thailand was described. Maize is one of the main crops produced in all provinces of the territory. The productivity of maize is over 2000000 ton/year. Therefore, more than 9000 GJ of energy can be obtained from this agricultural residue annually. In this study, an equilibrium model was developed for evaluation purposes. The effect of moisture content and gasification temperature was also discussed. Besides, the derating of the engine utilized with producer gas was also calculated.
