About

Would you know enough about cogeneration to advise a client? Systems that generate both heat and electricity, called cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) systems, aim to reduce costs and emissions by providing two things at once. Usable heat is produced when a cogeneration system generates power, providing efficiency gains of nearly twice that of utility power. In this interactive online course we'll discuss the simultaneous goals of providing heat and power, characteristics of turbines and engines in use, and other details such as economics and air emissions limits.

Objectives

  1. Distinguish between the different types of cogeneration systems
  2. Categorize systems and applications with respect to customer needs
  3. Compare regulatory changes and trends in cogeneration systems
  4. Classify the environmental and economic limitations of cogeneration systems
