Power Equipment and Systems
Lucas B. Hyman Adam Stadnik As discussed in previous chapters, combined heat and power (CHP), sometimes called cogeneration, trigeneration, integrated energy systems, or total energy systems, derives both electrical (or mechanical) power and useful heat from the same fuel source. With any CHP method, the power and the heat are derived from the oxidation of a fuel. In general, the processes fall into two major groups. One group burns (oxidizes) the fuel to produce heat in order to produce rotary power for electricity,…
