Selection, integration and operation of cogeneration systems
This section will highlight a series of common problems experienced during integration of cogeneration systems. Even after extensive design efforts and simulations, problems do occur at the implementation stage or during occasional unusual situations at the user side, sometimes caused by human error. An interesting summary of such situations, including solutions, is found in , which is unfortunately only available in Dutch. The lack of much international literature on the subject is caused by the fact that most problems occurring are typically solved by plumbing engineering rather than by a scientific approach. Much knowledge exists at dedicated installers of combined heat and power (CHP), but such organisations do not often publish their results.
