In this paper, a system of simultaneous production of power and heat and cooling in a Kalina cycle has been analyzed by energy, exergy and economic aspects. To provide heat in the cycle heating unit, four types of solar thermal linear (PTC) and linear share (LFR) heat collectors, plate (dish) and vacuum tube, have been used. The results of the analysis of this cycle for the PTC collector compared to other collectors showed that this collector was superior in increasing the energy and exergy efficiencies of the system and also lowering the total cost rate and exergy destruction of the CCHP cycle. By using parametric studies tried to obtain the effect of increasing and decreasing some of the cycle component parameters to get the most cooling, heating and power output.
