Abstract: Co-gasification of woody biomass and animal manure is an effective technology to utilize animal manure. In this work, the thermodynamic and economic analysis of an integration of co-gasification of woody biomass and animal manure with solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) and micro gas turbine is carried out. The overall thermodynamic performance of this combined heat and power (CHP) system is investigated by a mathematics model consisting of simple zero-dimensional model of SOFC and one-dimensional model of downdraft biomass gasifier. The net present value (NPV) method is adopted to investigate the economic feasible of the CHP system.
