The growth of demand for energy is increasing rapidly, and most current power generation is heavily dependent on fossil fuels. Using fossil fuels for power generation is not a secure future and is limited. The most abundant source of energy is solar energy. Concentrated solar power collectors have become one of the most effective choices to convert solar energy to heat, which can then be used to drive heat engines. Over the past decade, research on hybrid solar-gas turbines have shown good promise. This paper examines and studies the performance and design aspects of a hybrid micro solar-biogas turbine and its component technology for supplying low-carbon electricity on off-grid regions. Brayton cycle based several cycles are analyzed including a recuperator system. 100 kW unit system is designed.
