Abstract: Employing suitable subsystems to reach high efficiency and low cost in renewable-based power plants is more crucial. The geothermal energy heat source is located in many countries, but this has never been investigated to run a multi-generation system, including a branched GAX cycle and an electrolyzer. In this path, a high-efficient multi-generation system powered by a Sabalan (Savalan) geothermal power plant consisting of a single flash cycle, a branched GAX cycle, and an electrolyzer is presented and scrutinized from thermodynamic and exergoeconomic viewpoints. In the end, a two-objective optimization, by using the Total Unit Cost of Product (TUCP) and energy efficiency as objectives, is utilized to find the optimum operating conditions. Critiques and studies of variables reveal that the produced hydrogen rate remains unchanged at 5.655 kg/h by changing the degassing value and temperature of the generator, condenser 2, and evaporator. By increasing the flash tank pressure from 5.2 bar to 7 bar, the cooling and heating loads rise about 108.4%, while the net electricity falls from 3977 kW to 3506 kW. Interestingly, the TUCP has a minimum value at the evaporator temperature of 273 K and condenser 2 temperature of 322.3 K. The optimization results indicate the values of the produced hydrogen rate and net electricity with 5.85 kg/h and 4187 kW are more than those of the base case. Also, the optimal values are 7.046 $/GJ, 36.82%, and 65.42% for the TUCP and energy and exergy efficiencies, respectively.
