A thoroughly revised and redesigned edition of this excellent title, previously published in 1995. The practical application of second law energy analysis and associated thermoeconomics is increasingly generating practical applications. It is the aim of
Combined Power and Process - An Exergy Approach to accelerate this process by providing selected examples of applications which demonstrate the fresh and altered sense of proportion obtainable from exergy methods.
Using exergy analysis attention is successfully channelled towards economic improvement, and this book can thus be recommended as a valuable aid to all those engineers and designers associated with the analysis of engineering projects involving, for example, power generation, thermal processes, chemical reactions, electrolysis, or osmosis, to name but a few.
