Abstract

This paper proposes a scheme, called the disaster-risk-weighted damage inequality, for a customer to perform introductory planning for a distributed generation system considering business continuity planning in a disaster case. To calculate this inequality, the relevant disaster risks are surveyed and system operating simulations for target buildings such as a hotel, a hospital, a large-scale office, and a collective housing building are performed by solving a mixed integer linear programming problem under the assumption that a cogeneration system is installed as a distributed generation system. Next, we determined the probabilities of a disaster occurrence and business interruption due to a disaster, the initial cost of the equipment, the running cost, and the reduction in running cost due to a cogeneration system installation. The cogeneration system was found to effectively reduce the running cost. Finally, the suggested inequality is calculated and determined whether it is satisfied. The result showed that cogeneration system installation very effectively reduces the running cost for a hotel, a hospital, and a large-scale office, compared to the tolerable amount of loss that is preliminarily determined by a customer.
