Cogeneration and Polygeneration Systems
explores a suite of state-of-the-art modelling, design, analysis and optimization procedures, for creating and retooling optimally efficient combined heat and power (CHP) and polygeneration energy systems. It adopts exergetic and thermoeconomic analysis and related modelling and simulation tools to inform performance and systems design in modern cogeneration plants. Chapters provides a methodical approach to design, operate, and troubleshoot cogeneration systems when they are integrated with industrial processes. Cogeneration targets, environmental impacts, total site integration, and availability and reliability issues are addressed in depth.
- Explores exergetic and exergoeconomic analysis for optimization purposes of CHP systems
- Addresses availability and reliability issues within cogeneration systems
- Reviews modern polygeneration systems based on renewable energy resources and fuel cells
