Utilizing the benefits of a recently added combustion turbine with heat recovery, the University of Minnesota considered multiple options for additional cooling capacity. NV5 teamed with the University to meet this requirement. Based on favorable life cycle cost analysis and economical dispatching strategies based on steam and electricity cost, the team selected a modern absorption chiller. CHP operation strategies, trigeneration, GHG reductions, dispatching strategies, challenges, and resolutions will all be part of the presentation.
