The building sector is one major primary energy consumer and pollutant emission source. In recent years, the building-related research studies on the potential use of Maisotsenko-cycle in energy systems have been increasing in recent years. The growing interest lies in its expanded applications beyond the air-conditioning systems (the main "energy consumers" in buildings) into the prime movers (the key players in power generation). In order to evaluate its application merits in the practical tri-generation system of the urban districts, an extensive computer simulation platform has been developed. Based on a case study, this paper describes the techniques in the mixed use of numerical tools in performing system optimization studies for distributed power application on a university campus site. The practicality of the methodology is demonstrated through a hypothetical tri-generation system primed with Maisotsenko combustion turbine cycle. The findings are very much interesting.
