Description

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.

Key Features

  • 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

Readership

Upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students, researchers, scientists and engineers studying or working in mechanical, chemical, energy, environmental, process, and industrial engineering.
