The total energy system concept has been proposed as a possible means of reducing the cost of providing electricity at MIT. An overview of key factors influencing the possible shift to a total energy system approach is presented. Campus steam and electrical load profiles are defined and the dependence of load upon ambient temperature is analyzed. Load growth and the future impact of conservation measures at MIT are addressed in relation to the relative sizing of a proposed total energy plant. A demand model is constructed for use in simulating the operation of alternative total energy designs on a computer. A comparison of 1976 consumption data at MIT with that predicted by the load model is made, establishing the validity of the model for further use in total energy system simulation. Methods of modeling different equipment configurations are discussed for the purpose of devising computer programs to aid in comparative cost studies.
