Combined Cooling, Heating and Power

Book Description

A professional reference title written primarily for researchers in thermal engineering, Combined Cooling, Heating and Power: Decision-Making, Design and Optimization summarizes current research on decision-making and optimization in combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) systems. The authors provide examples of using these decision-making tools with five examples that run throughout the book.

  • Offers a unique emphasis on newer techniques in decision-making
  • Provides examples of decision-making tools with five examples that run throughout the book
