Modelling, Assessment, and Optimization of Energy Systems provides comprehensive methodologies for thermal modelling of energy systems based on thermodynamic, exergoeconomic, exergoenviromental approaches. It provides advanced analytical approaches and assessment criteria and the methodologies to obtain analytical expressions from the experimental data. The concept of single –objective and multi-objective optimization with application to energy systems is provided, along with the decision-making tools for multi-objective, multi-criteria problems and for simplifying the optimization of large energy systems, the exergoeconomic improvement integrated with a simulator EIS method is also discussed. This book provides a comprehensive methodology for modelling, assessment, improvement, and modelling of any energy system with guidance and practical examples to provide detailed insights for all of those engineers in energy engineering, mechanical engineering and chemical engineering and researchers in the field of analysis and optimization of energy systems.

Key Features

  • Offers comprehensive analytical tools for modelling and simulation of energy systems with applications for decision-making tools
