      Good morning,

      I'm a mechanical engineer with a MSc on thermal energy and I've graduated a year ago. Since then I've been working with industrial heat (sizing equipments, assessing efficiency in heating and cooling processes, etc.). I'm now moving to a new job involving energy efficiency in manufacturing plants (heat AND power) and I would like to learn more about industrial power networks (typical equipments, network structure, relationship with distributors, etc.) before I start in order to ease up my integration.

      I have only basic knowledge of AC and DC power and very basic knowledge of electrical machinery and electronics. I prefer SI units since I'm in Europe.

      Can you point out any resources on the topic (video courses, books)?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hey Figueiro,

      My go-to resource for electric power generation is https://www.electrical4u.com/electrical-engineering-articles/generation/
      You can check the relevant articles of this category, and you'll also find general (and even more specific) information in them, including the cogeneration part which is what you are after.

      Of course, there are a lot of other resources that I could suggest to you, For a recent book that contains key information about relevant energy systems, I would recommend this one: ISBN 9781785610554 which came out in 2017.
