Energy Efficiency Through Combined Heat & Power or Cogeneration Hardback
Edited by David H. Thomas
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the sequential or simultaneous generation of multiple forms of useful energy (usually mechanical and thermal) in a single, integrated system.
CHP systems consist of a number of individual components-prime mover (heat engine), generator, heat recovery, and electrical interconnection-configured into an integrated whole.
This book reviews the technical and economic characterisation of biomass resources, biomass preparation, energy conversion technologies, power production systems, and complete integrated systems.
