The Physics of CHP Cogeneration and Heat Engine Efficiency

The Physics of CHP Cogeneration and Heat Engine Efficiency

How does CHP work? To understand CHP you have to begin with the Carnot cycle, and how it describes the function and efficacy of any heat engine. The thermodynamic Carnot cycle (proposed by Nicolas Carnot in 1824) is a four-stage process that describes the reciprocal operations of a heat engine

SEPA Report Says Managed EV Charging Is Emerging Big Play for Utilities

SEPA Report Says Managed EV Charging Is Emerging Big Play for Utilities

In the not-so-distant future, charging of electric vehicles (EVs) could be remotely controlled—by utilities or third-parties—to manage load on distribution systems handling increasing amounts of renewable energy, while also providing benefits to customers, utilities and the grid.

The pieces of such a scenario are now coming together across the small but
