713 Cooling Heating Priority Control

In some cases, the DG units will be deployed as cogenerators to satisfy a cooling load (either through auxiliary absorption cooling or direct mechanical or electrical connection to conventional cooling equipment) or a heating load (through heat recovery). In this mode of control, the generators operate primarily to satisfy these loads, and the satisfaction of the electrical load is a secondary benefit. The number of generators installed is sufficient to meet the annual peak thermal load, and the control algorithm has the generators operating as required to meet the thermal load of the building. No consideration is given to the value of electricity to determine control actions.

Solar Stirling Engine Basics Explained

The solar Stirling engine is progressively becoming a viable alternative to solar panels for its higher efficiency. Stirling engines might be the best way to harvest the power provided by the sun. This is an easy-to-understand explanation of how Stirling engines work, the different types, and why they are more efficient than steam engines.
