Trigeneration – Combined Heat, Power and Cooling Production

Trigeneration combines heat, power and cooling production: During the power production process, more than half of the energy is generated as heat; trigeneration wants to utilize this heat in order to use the primary energy completely if possible.

Primary energy sources are diesel, natural gas or biogas. An Engine or turbine drives a generator to produce power. The generated heat can be fed into the system in different ways: Either the generated heat is used for heat recovery via cooling water and exhaust fumes and/or it is used for cooling supply with an absorber. Since a trigeneration does not consume but merely convert heat, the waste heat needs to be dissipated to the environment through a cooling tower or an evaporative condenser. Thus, components are always made up of cogeneration (power), heat exchanger/storage (heat), absorber (refrigeration), control (production) and a recooling plant, as well as storage technologies, refrigeration plants etc.

The control is essential for successful saving effects.
