This paper presents the measurement and analysis results for the performance of HGCHP system using a cooling tower as a supplemental heat rejector. In order to demonstrate the performance of the hybrid approach, we installed the monitoring equipments including sensors for measuring temperature and power consumption, and measured operation parameters from February 1, 2014 to February 28, 2015. Leaving load temperatures to building showed an average value of for cooling and for heating, respectively. From the analysis, the daily PF of hybrid GCHP system varied from 2.6 to 6.6 over the measurement period.
