Abstract

In this chapter different design methods for CCHP systems are presented. These methods include the classic maximum rectangle method (MRM); developed-MRM; energy management sizing methods including FEL, FTL, and FSL; the thermodynamic sizing method; the thermoeconomical sizing method; the multicriteria sizing function; and the fitness function method. In addition a CCHP system is designed for five climates by using different sizing methods and the results and advantages and disadvantages of sizing methods are compared as well.
