Recover Energy through New CHP Systems Design

Combined Heat and Power Design Guide was written by industry experts to give system designers a current, authoritative guide on implementing combined heat and power (CHP) systems. Combined Heat and Power Design Guide provides a consistent and reliable approach to assessing any site's potential to economically use CHP systems.


This guide provides up-to-date application and operational information about prime movers, heat recovery devices, and thermally activated technologies; technical and economic guidance regarding CHP systems design, site screening, and assessment guidance and tools; and installation, operation, and maintenance advice. As well as a glossary of terms, the book features extensive, detailed case studies on implementations in university, industrial, and hotel settings. Information is presented in both Inch-Pound (I-P) and International System (SI) units.

Also included with the book is access to the newly developed ASHRAE CHP Analysis Tool, a Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet (in I-P units only) for use in assessing sites for CHP applicability.

Combined Heat and Power Design Guide is an essential resource for consulting engineers, architects, building owners, and contractors who are involved in evaluating, selecting, designing, installing, operating, and maintaining these systems.
