Exergy: Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development

Front Cover
Elsevier, Sep 18, 2007 - Technology & Engineering - 472 pages
This book deals with exergy and its applications to various energy systems and applications as a potential tool for design, analysis and optimization, and its role in minimizing and/or eliminating environmental impacts and providing sustainable development. In this regard, several key topics ranging from the basics of the thermodynamic concepts to advanced exergy analysis techniques in a wide range of applications are covered as outlined in the contents.

- Comprehensive coverage of exergy and its applications
- Connects exergy with three essential areas in terms of energy, environment and sustainable development
- Presents the most up-to-date information in the area with recent developments
- Provides a number of illustrative examples, practical applications, and case studies
- Easy to follow style, starting from the basics to the advanced systems

Page 17 - Q/7~at that location, and the direction of entropy transfer is the same as the direction of heat transfer. To determine the rate of total entropy generation during this heat transfer process, we extend the system to include the regions on both sides of the wall that experience a temperature change. Then one side of the system boundary becomes room temperature while the other side becomes the temperature of the outdoors.
Page v - ... the environment. Exergy analysis is a method that uses the conservation of mass and conservation of energy principles together with the SLT for the design and analysis of refrigeration systems and applications. The exergy method can be suitable for furthering the goal of more efficient energy-resource use, for it enables the locations, types, and true magnitudes of wastes and losses to be determined. Therefore, exergy analysis can...
