This article summarizes an evaluation of micro-CHP (MCHP) systems in residential buildings. To account for the dynamic interactions between MCHP devices, heat storage and loads, MCHP models integrated into building simulations tools were used, calibrated with either results from laboratory experiments or manufacturer data. Solid oxide and polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell as well as Stirling and internal combustion engine devices were compared to reference systems with either gas boiler or…
