    In this investigation the thermodynamic, economic and environmental analysis of a 4rth generation system for simultaneous produce of heat, power, water and cooling of a residential building in Tehran-Iran has been done. Four different system have been used for power generation: 1-combined cycle of Direct Internal Reforming Solid Oxide Fuel Cell and Gas Turbine (IRSOFC-GT) 2-combined cycle of Gas Turbine and Steam Turbine (GT-ST) 3- cycle of Gas Turbine with Recuperator (GT-R) 4- cycle of Steam Turbine (ST). A double effect absorption chiller has utilized to provide the cooling load of the building, while a heat exchanger provides its thermal requirement. Also a MED-TVC system was used to...

    Despite the importance of well-being, few studies have been conducted on the relationship between well-being and technology. In this paper, the development of technology from the perspective of well-being studies are divided into three generations. In higher generations, the main criterion of technology development becomes more comprehensive, in order to decrease the side effects of technology. We introduce the fourth generation in which well-being is the main criterion of the design process. Although it may not seem necessary to say that the purpose of most technologies is implicitly well-being, we show that the domination of physical pleasure in terms of “use and convenience” in the modern...
