Page 35 The performance indexesùCCI, FUR and TLMùare useful to measure the extent to which the cogeneration criteria are met and to guide the designer in the selection of a suitable engine capacity. Thus, CCI measures how well cogeneration contributes to reduce the cost of purchased energy. The index FUR indicates how effectively the cogenerating unit satisfies its double function of displacing utility-purchased kWh and of providing a suitable thermal output to meet existing thermal loads. On the other hand, the index TLM would indicate how closely the engine thermal output matches existing thermal loads.

Rio de Janeiro Page v This book is dedicated to the creativeùand toughùindividuals who are responsible for the evolution of the cogeneration industry from a comparatively simple beginning to the powerful and complex activity which it now is. Many of their early articles were then presented in book format in 1985. It was necessary, in 1986, to expand into a second publication, The Cogeneration and Competitive Power Journal, also sponsored by AEE, in order to report properly on this dynamic technology.
