Tag: distributed power

In rail transport, distributed power (DP) refers to the physical distribution—at intermediate points throughout the length of a train—of separate motive power groups. Such ‘groups’ may be single units or multiple consists, and are remotely controlled from the leading locomotive. The concept of the distribution of motive-power was originally developed to permit the operation of longer trains where operational considerations or economics required it, however distributed power has since also been used under circumstances where it is desired to have motive-power at each end of a train simply for reasons of operational flexibility.

Cogeneration Utilizing Natural Gas-fired Reciprocating Engines

Cogeneration systems, also known as combined heat and power, have traditionally been installed by larger industrial users with high steam and power demands and by smaller, institutional users such as universities and hospitals. Since the early 2000s, smaller industrial and commercial companies have discovered cogeneration utilizing natural gas-fired reciprocating engines,

Exploring Microgrids with Dr. Peter Lilienthal, CEO of HOMER Energy

Microgrids, localized power networks of distributed energy resources, are increasingly advantageous in today’s energy landscape. Their ability to operate connected to the power grid or autonomously makes them ultra-valuable.

Microgrid configurations can incorporate natural gas or diesel cogeneration (CHP), fuel cells, energy storage batteries, microturbines, and renewables such as solar, wind,
