Lee Layton, PE
This three-hour course reviews an exciting new technology that is on the horizon as a potential heating and power supply system for residential homes. The concept of a micro-combined heat and power system (m-CHP) uses a small generator on-site that generates electricity and then uses the waste heat from the generator to heat and cool the home. This course includes an overview of the m-CHP concept, a discussion of the types of prime movers used for the energy source, and a review of how the waste heat can be used in the home.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
