Abstract : Public Law has directed the Department of Defense (DOD) to rehabilitate and convert its existing domestic power plants to burn more coal. Other Federal legislation requires DOD to use the most economic fuel for any new heating system. This five-volume report discusses the Central Heating Plant Economic Evaluation Program (CHPECON), a computer program for screening potential new and retrofit steam/power generation facilities. Volume 1 is the Technical Reference. Volume 2 is the User's Manual. Volume 3 is the Military Base Weather Information Data Management Program. Volume 4 is the Coalfield Properties Information Data Management Program. Volume 5 is the Emission Regulations Data Management Program. CHPECON provides screening criteria to evaluate competing combustion technologies using coal, gas, or oil; detailed conceptual facility design information; budgetary facility costs; and economic measures of project acceptability including total life cycle costs and levelized cost of service. The program provides sufficient flexibility to vary critical design and operating parameters to determine project sensitivity and parametric evaluation. jg
