Integrating CHP into high-rise office buildings presents a set of difficult challenges. Siting CHP units within the building and designing adequate cooling air, combustion air, vibration and sound attenuation and exhaust compete for precious floor space and building exterior surface area. Electrical interconnections present another set of challenging issues related to adequate loading under light load conditions and satisfying utility interconnection requirements. A case study is offered to illustrate the challenges encountered and potential solutions.
