The advantages of district energy systems over conventional heating and cooling systems include improved efficiency, reliability and safety, reduced environmental impact, and for many situations they are more economical. They can be particularly beneficial when integrated with combined heat and power (CHP) plants, i.e. with cogeneration plants for electricity and heat. One of the main impediments to increased use of cogeneration based district energy systems is a lack of understanding of the behaviour of integrated forms of such systems. This important book covers district energy and CHP technologies, as well as systems that combine them. It focuses on modelling, analysis and optimization, of cogeneration-based district energy systems. The modelling includes characterizing the general configurations and components of cogeneration and direct energy systems, and the development, verification and validation, of models for such systems. The analysis focuses on the application of thermodynamic analysis, and economic assessment techniques, to these systems. The optimization covers the identification of objective functions and constraints, and the development and application of optimization tools and computer code. This comprehensive overview of existing systems provides an essential resource for engineers and researchers in a broad area including mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, energy engineering, environmental engineering, process engineering and industrial engineering. It will also be of value to advanced undergraduate or graduate students in these disciplines.
