  This paper proposes a new methodology for optimal sizing of a combined cooling heating and power (CCHP) system with a gas turbine as its primary mover in a residential building in Xihu area in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China. Due to the significant impact of four substantial parameters including energetic, ...  Read More

Optimal Designing of the Capacity and the Operation of the CCHP System Using Balanced Collective Animal Behavior Algorithm: A Case Study

Roza Gholamin

Volume 1, Issue 2 , April 2022, , Pages 116-129


  The combined heating, cooling, and power source (CCHP) system is a good tool for the optimal consumption of fossil fuel thermal energy. In CCHPs, the produced waste heat from the hot gases can be recycled for generating power, heat, and water cooling and oil in electrical power generation systems which ...  Read More
