Micro CHP is an extension of the idea of cogeneration with size less than 50 kw.
Compact, package skid, already from 5 up to 50 kwh, is the top for branch banks, hotels and supermarket, but also large condos or large buildings.
The most common configuration of a microtrigenerator consisting of a combination of an internal combustion gas powered engine, whose mechanical energy is converted into electrical energy, and a waste heat recovery system for production of thermal energy. Coupling an absorber to the lithium bromide is also obtained cold water for summer air conditioning.
Micro CHP are technologically advanced devices that perform two functions simultaneously:
supplement or replace the boilers for heating (or air conditioning);
satisfies in whole or in part the need for electric consumption.
