University Shows Off CHP System

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Center for Environmental Engineering (CEE) of the University of Maryland demonstrated its advanced combined heat and power (CHP) system Sept. 9. The system generates both power and cooling for commercial buildings and in-creases energy efficiency, according to the university.

DTE Technologies Inc. and Kathabar Systems, manufacturers of the equipment used in the system, supported the demonstration. The Office of Distributed Energy of the U.S. Department of Energy provided funding for the program.

The CEE assembled and tested a series of CHP systems at the Integration Test Center. The latest system to be demonstrated showed how liquid desiccant systems are used for commercial buildings. The electricity produced by the generator displaces utility purchases; heat recovered from its exhaust is used to power the dehumidification system.
