New Aspects of Desalination and Multigeneration Technologies: Energy Analysis, Hybrid Desalination, Multigeneration explores energy modeling and analysis of desalination systems in both standalone and hybrid states. Fundamentals of renewable desalination technologies for developing solar and other renewable desalination plants are covered, along with comprehensive information on freshwater systems powered from renewable and non-renewable energy. In addition, hybridization of desalination plants, power generation systems and various energy resources are featured as well as thermodynamic modeling of integrated power plants and desalination systems. Other topics covered include the application of freshwater production methods from an energy point of view; cogeneration technologies; economic and thermoeconomic analysis; and integration of fresh water and power production plants. This reference is useful for energy and mechanical engineers as well as all those working in renewable, environmental and water engineering research.

Key Features
