Description

Exergy Analysis methods when applied to the built environment have the potential of increased efficiency in the design of a building’s heating and cooling systems. Exergy Analysis and Thermoeconomics of Buildings apply Exergy Analysis methods and the principle of thermoeconomics for gaining a full understanding of the mechanisms of heat transmission and operational cost throughout the envelope of buildings. The book moves progressively from introducing the basic concepts to applying them. This includes building envelops, HVAC components, equipment, and finally the thermal facilities as a whole.

Clear and rigorous in its exposition, Exergy Analysis and Thermoeconomics of Buildings discusses exergy analysis and the role they could play in the design of heating and cooling systems that are both effective and energy efficient in terms of applications and quality. In this book, exergy analysis is applied to a myriad systems components including: pipes, valves, heat exchangers, boilers, heat pumps, cogeneration and thermal energy storage (TES). Further analysis is devoted to absorption refrigerators, adsorption cooling systems, basic air conditioning processes, ventilation systems and solar systems, either thermal and photovoltaic (PV).

Exergy Analysis and Thermoeconomics of Buildings provide examples of specific cases throughout the book. These cases include real data, so that the results obtained are useful to interpret the inefficiencies and losses that truly occur in actual installations; hence, the assessment of their effects encourages the manner to improve efficiency.
