Overview

Use this practical "on-the-job" manual to guide you through the most difficult electrical control challenges.

Natural gas technologies that were new five years ago have now been tested in the real world. Those shown to be successful are being improved constantly, and adopted quickly, now that the initial developmental stage is past. This book describes some of these important technological improvements, covering both new engineering concepts and new products which have emerged, as well as important innovations to existing technologies. Many of the chapters include economic analyses which identify the cost savings attributable to the technologies described. Specific areas of development addressed include gas cooling, chillers, desiccant technologies, cogeneration, heating systems, and other natural gas technologies.
