Combined Heat Power, Cogeneration, Gas Turbine


Cogeneration (a system that provides both power and heat) is a method used to produce electricity while simultaneously using the exhausted heat energy of the flue gases. It is the most productive and effective use of the exhaust heat recovered. CHP utilizes the wasted heat of flue gases. Natural gas is used as the primary energy source; however, biomass is the sole source of energy in the renewable variant. Steam generation, electricity generation, and space heating are all handled by large CHP plants. A CHP plant comprises a primary mover, electricity generator, heat recovery system, and a control system. Longrunning hours, high efficiency, lower emissions, cheap cost, higher reliability, and increased output are just a few of the benefits.
