AbstractIn 2003, Natural Resources Canada, National Research Council Canada, and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation developed and demonstrated a test facility at the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology (CCHT) which incorporated the capability of assessing residential micro combined heat and power (CHP) systems under real-world conditions. The intent of the project was to adapt one of two existing research houses at CCHT to integrate a prototype CHP unit that would provide some electricity and heat to the house, and supply surplus electricity back to the grid. Documentation of the adaptation and CHP operation, including building integration issues and CHP performance characteristics, were key objectives, with the intent of providing valuable information to CHP manufacturers and researchers alike.
