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

Inside Tesla’s Gigafactory

Tesla’s battery factory, Gigafactory1, is an immense 1.9 million square-foot structure. Not only does it take up a large chunk of real estate in Nevada, its massive footprint is ever-expanding due to a project that has been largely kept under wraps. However, building permits made public last week offer some

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,
