Abstract
This concept paper studies a Gasifier based electricity generation system having power rating of 10 KW installed at Energy park in Rajiv Gandhi Technological University Bhopal(India).The system was used to test biomass briquettes using various agricultural waste from fields of crops named glycine max (soybean) stalks , cajanus cajan (arhar) stalks , lens culinaris (masoor) stalks , cotton stalks. The agricultural biomass is characterized by physical and proximate analysis of briquettes made of above mentioned stalks in single and mixed composition of waste stalks .Further preparing a comparison of the best sizes of briquettes and mixed composition used to feed a gasifier generating producer gas running gas engine powering AC generator .Experiment with briquetting of waste stalks collected from fields into different cylindrical briquettes with diameter 90 mm and height varies from 40 mm ,60 mm, 80 mm used as fuel in gasifier of 10 KW capacity producing producer gas for a gas generator producing power at standard voltage and frequency for a connected grid of load determining the optimum size and composition of agricultural waste briquettes for commercial electricity generation for rural areas .
