Abstract

Simultaneous generation of electricity (CHP) and cogeneration systems (CCHP) are an attractive technology according to the principle of cascading energy. When combined with renewable energy, these systems can reduce the intensity of fossil fuel consumption and environmental impact. In this research, the combination of systems for simultaneous generation of heat and cold electricity and geothermal heat pump as two heat and cold load supply systems has been studied. Each of these systems can be used alone as a supplier of heat and refrigeration demand, but their combination can provide higher capabilities in the supply of heat and refrigeration and is more economical. In a study conducted on a hospital, it was found that the use of a combination of systems for the simultaneous production of electricity, heat and cold and geothermal heat pump will have more appropriate energy results. Simultaneous generation of electricity (CHP) and cogeneration systems (CCHP) are an attractive technology according to the principle of cascading energy. When combined with renewable energy, these systems can reduce the intensity of fossil fuel consumption and environmental impact.
