Cogeneration: Considerations, Advantages, Disadvantages and Economics
June 16, 2016 | Atlanta, GA
This course is intended for those that would like to gain familiarity with the various issues and challenges that are faced when considering the possibility of installing a cogeneration facility. Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single fuel source. Even though the heat and power are fueled from a single source cogeneration is not a single technology, but is an integrated energy system. It is the complexity of the system and the number of different types of entities with very different circumstances that can benefit from the choice to cogenerate that brings to light the many considerations, advantages and possible disadvantages of installing cogeneration. The number of options for any particular plant are many and the methodology is somewhat confusing, this is part of what we hope to break down though out this course. These issues as well as economic considerations, efficiency, permitting and evaluations will be covered in the course.
- Outline cogeneration case studies
- Explain cogeneration and its fundamentals
- Review thermal load and electrical load balances
- Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of cogeneration plants
- Determine combustion, boiler and cycle efficiencies
- Contrast the types of cogeneration plants
- Examine plant considerations and the economics of building a cogeneration plant
- Identify permitting and environmental issues
