[en] Highlights: • Propose a solar-hybrid trigeneration system based on CLC. • Present the energy and exergy analyses in different design conditions. • Obtain the optimal solar collection temperature and air pressure ratio. • Energy and exergy efficiencies reaches 67% and 55% respectively. - Abstract: Chemical-looping combustion (CLC) that occurs without reacting air and fuel is a promising technology for achieving CO_2 capture with a low energy penalty and without additional energy consumption. This paper proposed a solar-hybrid trigeneration system based on methane CLC to produce electricity, chilled water for cooling, and hot water. CaS and CaSO_4 are the cycle materials of the CLC, and the reduction reaction in the CLC is driven by solar thermal energy. The thermodynamic performances of the new CLC trigeneration system, including energy and exergy efficiencies, are analyzed and compared on the basis of design conditions and variable parameters, respectively. The results indicate that the optimal solar heat collection temperature is approximately 900 °C, the pressure ratio of the air compressor is 20, and the energy and exergy efficiencies reach 67% and 55%, respectively. The output ratios of the three products vary with the solar collection temperature and pressure ratio. Meanwhile, the net SCLC-to-exergy efficiency and the saving rate of the solar collection area are expected to be 24% and 63%, respectively.
