To help building-services engineers maximise the benefits of CHP when incorporated into a commercial heating systems, Elco Heating Solutions has developed a CIBSE-approved CPD module. It considers all major aspects of commercial CHP installations, including how to size a CHP unit and the different design approaches for optimum running times and efficiencies. This CPD is delivered alongside a worked example in a hotel application.

Also included in the CPD are the fundamentals of a thermally led CHP installation, including correctly sizing a buffer vessel/thermal store, followed by details on combining CHP with gas-fired condensing boilers.

Finally, the module covers the extensive benefits of using CHP in commercial installations, as well as the considerations for achieving ‘good quality’ CHP status.

Ian Bradley, managing director for Elco Heating Solutions, says, ‘We believe there are still some fundamental variances in system design approaches. So, following extensive research of CHP theory, combined with test data from on-site installations, we have developed this CPD to identify the vital aspects of system design.
