Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

Article lead image

Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as Cogeneration, is an efficient process used to simultaneously generate electricity and heat. Often a steam turbine is used to generate electricity and the remaining heat is used for district heating or process requirements. However the heat and electricity demand is seldom constant, particularly if combined with a heat storage system, so disconnecting the turbine using an SSS Clutch can provide greater flexibility.
