3.3.1 Combined heat & power

Course subject(s) 3. Electricity production, rational use of energy and cogeneration

Engines and turbines deliver a lot of heat as a by-product, and you will discover that the use of this otherwise wasted heat in Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plants is extremely important for the efficiency of the total energy infrastructure. In this video you will learn how to make estimates of the total efficiency when cogeneration is applied.
