To increase cogeneration of heat and power (CHP) in Germany, the enhancement of the quote of micro-CHP in residential buildings is a promising option. The authors have explored the potential for cross-linked micro-CHP systems in the distribution of reserve power to achieve load-frequency control. This paper presents the fundamental elements of a test rig validated and calibrated simulation, as well as the framework conditions for micro-CHP operation in Germany. A brief analysis of the German load-frequency control market has shown the technical and organisational parameters and prices. The technical potential, with regard to the current contractual requirements for tertiary control has also been determined. A methodology, which leads to the calculation of the dynamic potential and the resulting completion ratio is presented. Thereby, the effects on the technical potential by changing the technical and organisational parameters have been analysed. The potential for a network of micro-CHP systems, replacing conventional power plants in providing load-frequency control, has been determined.
