Abstract

In this paper the integration of gas engines with combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) systems was presented. The gas engine model was integrated of Rankine cycle and organic Rankine cycle in Aspen HYSYS V7.3 for potential waste heat recovery and utilization. The effect of exhaust gas temperature at different operating conditions on the efficiency and output power of the system were investigated and compared. The system integration resulted in an increase of 7% and 5% in the overall system efficiency and output power respectively. The system integration offered potential recovery of the waste heat for additional power generation whilst providing cooling and heating demands.
