In this research, a novel trigeneration powered by a renewable energy (RE) source is developed and analyzed. The trigeneration system is designed to produce electricity, hot water, and cooling using two steam cycles, a gas cycle, hot water chamber, and an absorption cycle. The RE source considered in the scope of this study is biogas generated from chicken manure and maize silage. The energy and exergy analysis of the trigeneration system is performed with the aim to achieve higher efficiencies. The efficiencies are presented based on power generation, cogeneration (electricity and cooling) and trigeneration. The overall trigeneration energy and exergy efficiency for the system developed is 64% and 34.51%. The exergy destruction within the system is greatest in the combustion chamber. View Full-Text
