Experimental study on a micro-CCHP system with an adsorption chiller.

Author(s) : KONG X. Q., LI Y., WANG R. Z.


Performance research on a micro-combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) system is described. The natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)-fired micro-CCHP system uses a small-scale generator set driven by a gas engine and a new small-scale adsorption chiller (COP about 0.4), which has a rated electricity power of 12 kW, a rated cooling power of 10 kW and a rated heating capacity of 28 kW. Silica gel-water is used as working pair in the adsorption cooling system. The test facility designed and built is described, which supplies a better test-rig platform for cooling, heating and power cogeneration. Experimental methodology of this system is presented and the results are discussed. An energetic analysis of micro-CCHP system is performed as well. The overall thermal and electrical efficiency is over 70%.
