Recent progress in multi-generation systems


To reduce global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, multi-generation systems including co-generation (or combined heat and power, CHP) and tri-generation (or combined cooling, heat and power, CCHP) are widely used to enhance energy efficiency by recovering a portion of heat dissipated into the ambient environment in various application, including plants, buildings, and vehicles. Diverse multi-generation strategies have been developed with preliminary commercialization based upon fossil- or renewable-based prime mover technologies such as internal combustion engine, steam turbine, gas turbine, micro-turbine, and fuel cell. However, challenges remain in aspects of performance optimization, energy demand and supply matching, dynamic characteristics and control strategies, pollutant tracking and control, and cost reduction. Therefore, this special issue aims to review recent progress and advancement in the development of multi-generation technologies based upon traditional and renewable energy resources and prime movers and to provide directions for higher energy efficiency and better economic and environmental benefits.


The specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Fossil- and renewable-based CHP/CCHP system
  • Large-scale and Micro-CHP/CCHP system
  • Application in plants, buildings, vehicles, etc.
  • Techno-socio-economic analysis
  • Advanced material and component design
  • Advanced experimental technique and uncertainty analysis
  • Advanced physics-based or data-driven modeling approach
  • Advanced system optimization and control strategy
