Cogeneration generators are designed to produce both electricity and heat at the same time. These generators capture the waste heat generated during the combustion of fuel and use it to generate electrical energy, while at the same time using this waste heat in a different way and storing it for use in heating or cooling systems.
Cogeneration generators offer higher efficiency compared to conventional power plants because they can produce both electricity and heat using the same fuel. In addition, the waste heat generated as a result of the operation of these generators can also be used for different purposes such as heating and cooling buildings, which ensures a more efficient use of energy.
Cogeneration generators are generally used in industrial facilities, hospitals, universities, large buildings and power outages in the power grid. These generators can use natural gas, biomass, coal, waste oil and similar fuels as fuel.
