Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Jun. 29-Jul. 5, covered implementing microgrids, variable refrigerant flow, integrated project delivery, designing generator rooms, and a university campus CHP case study. Link to each article below.

1. Implementing microgrids: Controlling campus, community power generation

Microgrids can lower cost and raise reliability for the owner, and for surrounding communities. 

2. Is VRF right for your next project?

Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems can be specified into a variety of buildings, especially those that require flexibility.

3. IPD: What’s in it for the engineer?

Integrated project delivery (IPD) requires a team approach and buy-in from all players, including the architect, engineer, and contractor.

4. Design generator rooms for optimum performance

Mechanical engineers should design generator set rooms so that the electrical system meets the design goals set by the owner and electrical engineer.

5. Case study: university campus CHP

Cogeneration systems—also known as combined heat and power (CHP) systems—generate both electricity and usable thermal energy. These systems typically are used on campuses that have high heat load requirements.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, June 29 to July 5, for articles published within the last two months.
