Overrunning clutches in District Energy systems lower CAPEX, reduce operating costs and improve flexibility. Description of overrunning clutches types. Applications: 1- district heating comparing economics of HP+Clutch+LP turbine to the alternative of a single auto-extraction turbine, 2 - dual driven chiller compressor train allowing real time selection of energy source, and producing demand side management revenue and eliminating a separate standby generator. 3 - Clutches in combined cycle systems.
