Combined Heat and Power

Cogeneration today is widely used throughout the world for efficient production of heat and power. Cogeneration is the simultaneous production of heat and power in a single thermodynamic process. The purpose of this course is to review the different approaches for applying technologies to the function of cogeneration. We’ll also explore the various issues and considerations for deployment of the two main types of cogeneration concepts: “Topping Cycle” plants (including “Combined Cycle” plants), and “Bottoming Cycle” plants.
