Combined Heat and Power Systems
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems, also known as cogeneration, generate electricity and useful thermal energy in a single, integrated system. The engine drives the generator, producing electricity, and the residual heat created during this process is recaptured and turned into useful heat. Combined Cooling, Heating, and Power (CCHP) systems, also known as trigeneration, takes this to another level by providing cooling through chillers.
AVL has specialized engineers and a project management team who will review your unique power requirements and will work to design a customized CHP application for your needs. Our experts determine the equipment that’s right for you, whether it’s an open set, acoustic set, or a containerized set.
Every unit packaged by AVL Manufacturing Inc. goes through a power system test to ensure full functionality of the power module. Since installation, our CHP plants have proven to be an efficient way to generate electricity and thermal energy, and will offer tremendous economic and environmental benefits.
