Feasibility of Emerging Technologies Based Cogeneration Systems for University of Technology Sydney
This paper presents an optimum selection of a co-generation system for heat and power generation at University of Technology Sydney, based on technological, environmental, social and economical factors. Five potential cogeneration concepts were developed based on Internal combustion (IC) engines, External combustion engines including Stirling engine, Organic Rankine cycle (ORC), Kalina cycle, and Fuel-cells, and compared. Organic Rankine Module (ORC) is finally selected. The selected cogeneration offers shorter payback period, lower IRRand net-energy savings, lower Co2 emissions, and higher electric-power generation capacity.
