The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems produce more than one useful effect simultaneously by making use of recovered waste heat from the same fuel source. Based on number of useful effects produced, the CHP systems can be a co-generation (two useful effects) or a tri-generation (three useful effects) system. The useful effects are electricity, heating and cooling.  The use of these sustainable CHP systems versus conventional electrical power plants and fuel fired boilers can reduce the energy loss resulting in reduced emission and environmental impact. These combined power plants can also be made to function as co-generation or trigeneration systems producing two or three useful effects simultaneously. In Singapore, more than 80% of the power generated uses natural gas-fired combined cycle power plants due to their proven superior thermal efficiency and a relatively cleaner fuel.  Also, a significant portion of the heat and power requirement in the industrial sector can be supported with this kind of on-site co-generation systems.

This module is tailored in the backdrop of the above and aims to provide comprehensive fundamentals of Combined Heat and Power Plants targeted at industrial professionals operating under the Singapore regulatory requirements.
