Fossil-fueled power plants are still the world’s backbone in terms of electricity
generation, including in Indonesia. This will continue to increase due to the high demand of
electricity. Meanwhile, the amount of fossil fuels is limited and fossil fuel creates exhaust
emissions. Therefore, it is required to look for clean and renewable electricity generation
methods. The development of Diesel Gasifier Power Plant carried out by PT Indonesia Power
Bali aims to reduce the use of diesel by using syngas obtained from gasification of biomass
pellets. This study analyzes the performance of the Diesel Gasifier Power Plant at PT Indonesia
Power Bali. The results show that the use of syngas reduces the use of diesel, this is indicated
by the fuel consumption ratio between diesel and syngas, which is 56% diesel and 44% syngas.
The results also show that the Diesel Gasifier Power Plant has an efficiency of 63% and a
capacity factor of 58%.
