Heat-activated cooling technologies for small and micro combined heat and power (CHP) applications

K. Gluesenkamp and R. Radermacher,     University of Maryland, USA

Abstract:

This chapter covers the technologies available for small-scale combined heat and power (CHP) systems to utilize recovered heat for air conditioning or refrigeration purposes. Five classes of technology are described and discussed within the context of small-scale CHP: (1) solid desiccant dehumidification, (2) liquid desiccant dehumidification, (3) adsorption (solid adsorbent-based) heat pumps, (4) absorption (liquid absorbent-based) heat pumps, and (5) steam ejector cycles. In this context of small-scale CHP, performance metrics for each class of system are discussed, ...
