The inherent characteristics of renewable energy, such as highly random fluctuation and anti-peak, are essential issues that impede optimal design of a combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) system. Based on the hierarchical control framework and rolling optimization, this study presents a novel two level synergistic optimization operation strategy. The upper level, which considers the power generation unit( PGU) optimization and active storage operation, optimizes the day-ahead hourly generation schedules of each CCHP component. The lower level, with the results of the upper level, coordinate the power of energy storages in minute timescale. A case study shows the effectiveness of the above methods. The implementation of the study fundamentally improves the overall energy utilization degree and the ability for renewable accommodation to thereby provide a guiding principle for CCHP system operation.
