    • An Application of Integrated Thermal and Electrical Energy Cogeneration Optimization 

      Ahner, D. J.; Mills, R. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1994-04)
      The savings associated with operations optimization of power generation and cogeneration facilities are large, and readily justify the hardware and software costs required for implementation of Energy Management Optimization ...
    • Cogeneration Economics for Process Plants 

      Ahner, D. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1985-05)
      This paper presents the incentives for cogeneration, describing pertinent legislation and qualification requirements for cogeneration benefits, and indicates the performance and economic characteristics of combined cycle ...
    • Combined Thermal and Power Energy Management Optimization 

      Ahner, D. J.; Priestley, R. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1991-06)
      The savings associated with energy management optimization of cogeneration facilities are large, and readily justify the hardware and software development costs required for their implementation. Energy Management ...
    • Design for, and Evaluation of Life Cycle Performance 

      Ahner, D. J.; Hall, E. W. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1986-06)

    • The Effect of Variable Quality Fuels on Cogeneration Plant Performance 

      Ahner, D. J.; Oliva, J. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1986-06)
      The variable energy characteristics of solid wastes, biomass and other low grade fuels, when utilized in cogeneration applications, introduce several additional plant design considerations. The effects of longer term ...
    • Evaluating Benefits with Independent and Cogenerated Power Production 

      Ahner, D. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1989-09)
      New generation planning concepts must be developed which recognize an expanded list of "stakeholders", (e.g. IPP's, ·cogenerators, industrial hosts, utility shareholders and rate payers), and additional technical issues ...
    • Identifying Energy Systems that Maximize Cogeneration Savings 

      Ahner, D. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1988-09)
      This paper discusses the maximizing of Regional Cogeneration Energy Savings utilizing various technologies and fuels within a given service region. A methodology is developed to establish the allocation of power to the ...
    • Measured Performance Signature Method 

      Ahner, D. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1996-04)
      The performance correction of systems that have many thermally integrated components is complex and subject to error if individual component misperformance and/or deterioration is present. The performance correction ...
    • On Line Power Plant Performance Monitoring 

      Ahner, D. J.; Priestley, R. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1990-06)
