Micro-cooling, heating, and power (micro-CHP) is decentralized electricity generation coupled with thermally activated components for residential and small commercial applications. A micro-CHP system consists of a prime mover, such as a reciprocating engine, which drives a generator, which produces electrical power. The waste heat from the prime mover is recovered and used to drive thermally activated components and to produce hot water or warm air through the use of heat exchangers. Micro-CHP holds some of the answers to the efficiency, pollution, and deregulation issues that the utility industry currently faces. A review of micro-CHP systems, specific types of distributed power generation, and thermally-activated technologies are introduced and discussed in this book. --from publisher description.
