Cogeneration Overview

CIRCOR Pumps and Systems in Power Generation Applications

As the name implies‚ cogeneration means multiple forms of generation. In a cogeneration plant‚ the power plant will generate electricity with a combustion‚ steam turbine or stationary diesel engine to generate electricity. The post combustion steam is the diverted to a secondary source for either district heating of hospitals‚ prisons‚ oil refineries‚ commercial buildings‚ paper mills or for process support. Thus in one process a cogeneration plant is producing electricity and heat or process support. It is an efficient process and in some ways similar to the operation of a combined cycle power plant.

Cogeneration is a popular in the Scandinavian and Eastern European countries with smaller pockets of applications in the United States such as New York City.
