Short Course:
Basics of Combined Heat and Power

Course Length: 3 hours

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is an efficient, clean and reliable approach to generating power and energy from a single fuel source. CHP is one of the most efficient ways to burn fuel because little energy is lost as waste heat.

This course focuses on the fuel savings, emissions reduction, and decentralization of energy and power supply. The basic CHP terms and definitions, rating parameters, and energy conversion systems are discussed. The focus of this course is to understand thermal design for CHP systems and the types of technology that exists.

Course objectives include: learn the principles of CHP thermal design, and different CHP equipment and systems available; learn the basic regulatory issues, environmental benefits, consequences, and emission controls; and learn the steps to conduct a feasibility study including economic analysis.
