1. The simultaneous generation of electricity and useful heating and cooling from the combustion of a fuel or a solar heat collector.
, 2. Trigeneration or combined cooling, heat … 2. Trigeneration or combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP), is the process by which some of the heat produced by a cogeneration plant is used to generate chilled water for air conditioning or refrigeration. An absorption chiller is linked to the combined heat and power (CHP) to provide this functionality.power (CHP) to provide this functionality.
