CDA’s Latest Case Study Examines Copper’s Role in Modern Electrical Infrastructure

Microgrids and smart grids are becoming increasingly relied upon as the world searches for sustainable power sources and as its energy needs continue to grow. As advancements in power technology continue making electrical grids smaller, more powerful, and more energy

Integrating CHP with Microgrids

Integrating CHP with Microgrids

While combined heat & power (CHP) may not be appropriate for integration into all microgrids, it definitely does have its place in a lot of them.

CHP systems output heat (or cooling), as well as electricity, primarily as a topping cycle. “The prime mover is typically a reci­procating engine or a turbine,”

Making Power Multitask With CHP/CCHP

Making Power Multitask With CHP/CCHP

Cogeneration, or combined heat and power (CHP), uses a heat engine or power station to generate electricity and heat for onsite uses. Trigeneration, or combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP), is the simultaneous generation of electricity and useful heating and cooling as a result of the combustion of fuel or
