A thoroughly revised and redesigned edition of this excellenttitle, previously published in 1995. The practical application of second law energy analysis andassociated thermoeconomics is increasingly generating practicalapplications. It is the aim of Combined Power and Process- An Exergy Approach to accelerate this process byproviding selected examples of applications which demonstrate thefresh and altered sense of proportion obtainable from exergymethods.
Using exergy analysis attention is successfully channelledtowards economic improvement, and this book can thus be recommendedas a valuable aid to all those engineers and designers associatedwith the analysis of engineering projects involving, for example, power generation,
thermal processes, chemical reactions, electrolysis, or osmosis, toname but a few.
Notes on equilibrium; exergy analysis of simple steam power and desalination plant; a modern combined cycle-based CHP system; fuel and equilibrium fuel cells; whisky distillation by heat pump; practical fuel cell systems for hydrogen, power and heat production; remarks on process integration.
