The thermodynamic heating method combines cogeneration power plants and heat pumps in order to maximize the heating energy that can be derived from a given amount of fuel. In doing this, unnecessary waste of primary energy and environmental damage can be prevented. In this paper, four cogeneration systems—combined cycle plants, steam and gas turbine power plants, and gas engines—and heat pump systems are investigated and compared with respect to fuel utilization for realistic site conditions. It is shown that the combined cycle cogeneration power plant is superior to the other three types of power plant.
