Cogeneration Power Plants: Planning and Evaluation

$109.00

Summary

Many on-site power plants either fail outright or perform far below expectations— all because of poor planning and evaluation of the power plants from the beginning.

This book is intended to help those interested in cogeneration power plants by laying out a thorough and proven planning methodology for new facilities, as well as an evaluation methodology for existing facilities.

There are many good reasons to want your own power plant including: improved power quality, increased reliability, and savings on energy expenses— buying power wholesale, rather than at retail prices. Although the economics are certainly important, there are a wide range of other advantages to consider, the relative value of which will vary depending on your unique circumstances.

  • Energy Manager
  • Power System Engineer
  • Operations Manager
  • Operations Supervisor
  • Project Manager
