Heat Transfer Technologies for Combined Heat and Power Applications
Patricia Irving, PhD
Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as Cogeneration, is the concurrent production of electricity or mechanical power and useful thermal energy (heating, cooling, and/or process use) from a single energy input. CHP systems consist of a number of individual components—prime mover (heat engine), generator, heat recovery, and electrical interconnection— configured...
Design and Test of High-Temperature Recuperator (HTR) for Carbonate Fuel Cells
* This abstract was co-authored by Lou Curcio (ExxonMobil Research & Engineering Company) and Chris Howard (FuelCell Energy, Inc.).
FuelCell Energy’s proprietary technology uses carbonate fuel cells to efficiently capture and concentrate carbon dioxide streams from large industrial sources. Combustion exhaust is directed to the fuel cell, which produces power while...
Improving Thermal Management for Large Li-ion Energy Storage Systems
* This presentation was co-authored by Amy Lenneman and Chris Boyer, PhD from AES Distributed Energy.
The electric utility industry is experiencing a rapid growth in the deployment of large banks of Li-Ion batteries, and with that growth, the awareness of the challenges and importance for good thermal management of the...
