Abstract—Trigeneration electric production can be defined as a power system in which heating and cooling are simultaneously produced. In this study, we attempted to decrease the energy consumption of a pharmaceutical factory. For this purpose, a trigeneration application was carried out based on the data from a currently active pharmaceutical factory in Istanbul, Turkey. The costs of exergy and exergy losses, the ratios of exergy losses, and the exergy economic factor parameters of the equipment were determined. The exergy economic factors were found and in view of these parameters, assessments were made to determine the improvements that could be made in the system equipments.
Index Terms—energy, factory, exergy analysis, exergy economic factor
