Integrated CHP and desalination plant. J. Johansen, R.F. Babus'Haq and S.D. Probert. Appl. Energy, 1996, 53(1--2), 157--178.

Consideration is given to a proposed integrated combined-cycle heat-and-power as well as a seawater desalination plant. Commonly used desalination processes are tabulated and discussed as well as CHP configurations. A case study is presented together with a financial evaluation---four combined-cycle CHP systems have been considered and several desalination processes evaluated. The result being the selection of a combined-cycle system comprising a gas-turbine, an HRSG (heat recovery steam generator) and a back-pressure steam turbine together with a MED-RO (multiple effect distillation-reverse osmosis) desalination process.17 refs.
