Figure 3: PC2S Power Plant High Value Applications

Hotels, hospitals, large office buildings, high-tech manufacturing sites and institutions (universities, jails, etc.) have been the most common early customers of these applications. This is generally because of these buildings' size, thermal loads, and need for dedicated power.

New Applications

With Carrier, a sister subsidiary within United Technologies, we are currently exploring additional integrated applications with HVAC equipment. At present, the cogenerated heat from the PC25 can be used in certain types of Carrier's absorption chilling equipment. This system delivers not only cooling, but also Premium Power, at an unmatched level of energy efficiency and environmental cleanliness. A schematic of this system is shown in Figure 4.
