Description

Hybrid Poly-generation Energy Systems: Thermal Design and Exergy Analysis provides an analysis of the latest technologies and concepts of hybrid energy systems, focusing on thermal applications. It guides readers through an introduction to hybrid poly-generation systems and the storage options available, before working through six types of hybrid system, including solar, fuel cells, combustion, and heating and cooling. An analysis of the economic and environmental impact of each system is included, as well as methods and approaches for exergy and energy improvement analysis. This book can be used as a tool for understanding new concepts in this emerging field, and as a reference for researchers and professionals working on the integrated cogeneration of power systems.
