About this book
This thorough and highly relevant volume examines exergy, energy, and the environment in the context of energy systems and applications, and as a potential tool for design, analysis, and optimization. It further considers their role in minimizing and/or eliminating environmental impacts and providing for sustainable development. In this regard, several key topics ranging from the basics of the thermodynamic concepts to advanced exergy analysis techniques in a wide range of applications are covered.
This book also:
· Enlightens readers to exergy’s connection with three essential areas: energy, environment, and sustainable development
· Provides numerous examples, practical applications, and case studies to put theory into practice
· Has an easy-to-follow style, starting from the fundamental concepts and working to advanced systems and their applications making it suitable for use in the classroom
· Provides many study problems that foster critical thinking and skills development, with a wide range of applications, from basic to integrated
