Actual energy loss due to entropy generation in low-and high-temperature machines and plants

  • A. M. Arkharov
  • V. V. Sychev


An attempt has been made to interrelate two data sources of decisive importance for analysis of refrigerating, cryogenic, and thermal power plants: data obtained by entropic method of analysis of energy loss and experimental statistical data accumulated over a long period of practical work on thermodynamic efficiency (degree of thermodynamic perfection) of real low-and high-temperature machines and plants. An entropostatistical version of the analysis is proposed.
