Combined Heat and Power System Assessment and Optimization

The Collins Aerospace Windsor Locks site seeks to improve the energy use, sustainability, operation, and reliability of its Combined Heat and Power System. The system needs to be evaluated from a thermodynamic perspective, and controls and operation practices should be reviewed. Current and emerging technologies should be evaluated for feasibility, cost- effectiveness, and efficacy in reducing energy consumption, GHG emissions, and/or water usage.

Our team collaborated with Electrical and Computer Engineering 15,Systems Engineering 5 on this project.
