Tag: cogeneration system

Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) is the use of a heat engine or power station to generate electricity and useful heat at the same time. Trigeneration or combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) refers to the simultaneous generation of electricity and useful heating and cooling from the combustion of a fuel or a solar heat collector.

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,

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

Better Together

Better Together

“Waste not want not” is a respected proverb in many engineering applications. However, according to the three laws of thermodynamics, waste heat is inevitable in any working system. And, while it is physically impossible to prevent the generation of waste heat, a power system operator can make a virtue out

Connectivity And Resilience

Connectivity And Resilience

The great northeast power blackout of 2003 was a reminder that reliance on large grids has widespread implications. The power outage—lasting several days in some areas—affected millions in the US and Canada. Nearly a decade later, Hurricane Sandy left the area without power for weeks. Many in the energy industry

Load, the Oft-Overlooked Distributed Energy Resource

Researchers at DNV-GL did a fine report for the New York Independent System Operator a few years ago. Titled A Review of Distributed Energy Resources, it offered this definition of the various distributed energy resources (DERs) examined in the report:

“… DER technologies are defined as ‘behind-the-meter’ power generation and storage

Facility Focus: Critical Solutions for Clinical Applications

Increasing cost pressures on hospitals due to impacts of health care reform on reimbursements appear to be impacting their energy sources, according to some industry experts. Changes in the economic model and ever-growing demand for reliability and lower emissions mean that distributed generation has a bright future in this space.

Guest Commentary: Combined Heat and Power

There are thousands of reported power outages each year. The largest cause of these interruptions is severe weather. Manufacturers need to determine how long they can go without production or supply basic functions like heating and cooling, or other essential services when the next big storm hits. When power delivery failure

Turbines and Non-Traditional Fuels

Turbines and Non-Traditional Fuels

In recent years, turbine manufacturers have been taking a number of steps to make their equipment more environmentally friendly in terms of improved efficiency and performance, reduced emissions, and such. However, what is even bigger news is how turbines are being used as parts of larger renewable and environment-conscious projects.
