Title: A combined heat and power system for buildings driven by solar energy and gas
Issue Date: 2002
Abstract: A novel hybrid solar/gas system intended to provide cooling/heating and electricity generation for buildings was developed. The system is based on the combination of an ejector heat pump cycle with a Rankine cycle. It is driven by solar energy and supplemented by a gas burner. The system also uses an environmentally friendly refrigerant to have minimal impact on the environment. Results of system computer modelling, prototype tests and economic analysis are reported. The system was judged to be viable and reliable. Technical improvements still have to be achieved to improve system economics.
