The main objective of this study is to calculate total exergy losses in a power generation system designed for a research hospital in Rize, Turkey. For this purpose a multigenera-tion system is designed and all equipments are taken into consideration for the analysis. Considering all the parameters, exergy loses of each component of the system are calculated. The results from this study show that the maximum and minimum value of exergy loss in the gas turbine powered system are found to be 3214 kW in the distiller and to be 11 kW in electrolysis. In this regard, it can be said that there is a need to enhance the exergetic performance of the processes in the system.
