This book stems from peer-reviewed work the author has published in energy and scientific journals, and follow-up working papers produced on the many links between economics, energy and thermodynamics. Topics covered in this third edition of the book include the gas laws, the distribution of income, the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics applied to economics, economic processes and elasticity, entropy and utility, production processes, empirical monetary and employment analysis of the UK and USA economies up to 2011, interest rates, investment and discounted cash flow, bond yield and spread, unemployment, entropy maximization principles, business cycles and reaction kinetics. A chapter is devoted to in-depth analyses of world energy resources and climate change as factors that will impact on economic output. The book finishes with a discussion of the future sustainability of the economic system commensurate with prevailing constraints. The book is aimed at the professional/scholarly and further/higher education economics and science markets

The Thermoeconomics of Energy Conversions presents the developed methodologies that reveal the cost effectiveness of energy-resource-saving ideas design. This book discusses the theory of thermoeconomics. Organized into nine chapters, this book begins with an overview of the foundation of the design analysis of systems that use or produce useful forms of energy. This text then examines the rational basis for costing energy conversion devices for the purpose of optimal system design. Other chapters consider the enhancement of system optimization. This book discusses as well the significance of the design models of energy conversion devices as rich resources for predicting both their costs and overall performance of their system. The final chapter deals with the software of the accompanying compact disc. This book is a valuable resource for engineers and scientists who are involved in the development of efficient energy conversion systems. Students, system designers, and device designers will also find this book useful.

Quantifying exergy losses in the energy supply system of buildings reveals the potential for energy improvement, which cannot be discovered using conventional energy analysis. Thermoeconomics combines economic and thermodynamic analysis by applying the concept of cost (an economic concept) to exergy, as exergy is a thermodynamic property fit for this purpose, in that it combines the quantity of energy with its quality factor. Exergy Analysis and Thermoeconomics of Buildings applies exergy analysis methods and thermoeconomics to the built environment. The mechanisms of heat transfer throughout the envelope of buildings are analyzed from an exergy perspective and then to the building thermal installations, analyzing the different components, such as condensing boilers, absorption refrigerators, microcogeneration plants, etc., including solar installations and finally the thermal facilities as a whole. A detailed analysis of the cost formation process is presented, which has its physical roots firmly planted in the second law of thermodynamics. The basic principles and the rules of cost allocation, in energy units (exergy cost), in monetary units (exergoeconomic cost), and in CO2 emissions (exergoenvironmental cost), based on the so-called Exergy Cost Theory are presented and applied to thermal installations of buildings. Clear and rigorous in its exposition, Exergy Analysis and Thermoeconomics of Buildings discusses exergy analysis and thermoeconomics and the role they could play in the analysis and design of building components, either the envelope or the thermal facilities, as well as the diagnosis of thermal installations. This book moves progressively from introducing the basic concepts to applying them. Exergy Analysis and Thermoeconomics of Buildings provides examples of specific cases throughout this book. These cases include real data, so that the results obtained are useful to interpret the inefficiencies and losses that truly occur in actual installations; hence, the assessment of their effects encourages the manner to improve efficiency. Applies exergy analysis methods for the installation of building thermal facilities equipment components, including pipes, valves, heat exchangers, boilers and heat pumps Helps readers determine the operational costs of heating and cooling building systems Includes exergy analysis methods that are devoted to absorption refrigerators, adsorption cooling systems, basic air conditioning processes, ventilation systems and solar systems, either thermal and PV Discusses the direct application of exergy analysis concepts, including examples of buildings with typical heating, DHW and air conditioning installations

A method for combining thermodynamic and economic analyses is described. The purpose is to make the economic consequences of design decisions apparent during the design process. In conventional methods of design, the thermodynamic and economic analyses are conducted sequentially. By developing a method for treating the two disciplines concurrently it is hoped that better designs will result. The method is similar in philosophy to conventional approaches to thermodynamic analyses. The system is divided into sub-systems upon which energy, entropy, material and economic balances are made. In addition to tracking the thermodynamic variables (temperature, pressure, composition, energy, enthalpy, entropy, free energy, etc.) the thermoeconomic approach also tracks the destruction of generalized availability (essergy destruction) and generalized value (essergy added value and capital destruction). These are called to the designer's attention by a series of measures applied to each zone defining (in a manner analagous to second law efficiencies) the maximum attainable economic improvement associated with each zone. A simplified gas turbine cycle is used to illustrate, in a step-by-step analysis, how the method works. Numerical examples are also given for more complex systems.

Although the exergy method has been featured as the subject of many publishing papers in scientific and engineering journals and at conferences, very few comprehensive books on this subject have been published so far. Practical Approach to Exergy and Thermoeconomic Analyses of Industrial Processes details the exergetic and thermoeconomic analyses of industrial processes using Aspen Plus and a novel Microsoft Excel Application developed by the authors which can be applied to industrial processes across the board. Employing a practical approach to an innovative and complex energy process, every chapter contains extensive explanations of a complex and real case and numerous examples whose solution demonstrates the application of theory to a wide range of real and practical problems. Illustrations, tables and graphs support and illustrate the new methodology to build a deep understanding of the real employment of the fuel used and the cost formation and increase inside the process. Practical Approach to Exergy and Thermoeconomic Analyses of Industrial Processes provides users, students and practitioners of process analysis, power plant design and fuel use optimization, with a broad introduction and approach to computer aided process optimization. It also serves as a comprehensive guide to the operational application of the MHBT to real cases analysis.

Book and disk. This book deals with the application of a powerful set of techniques, collectively denominated Artificial Intelligence to general problems in the fields of the design, monitoring and control of thermal systems for energy conversion, with a heavier accent on design applications. As an introduction it gives some indications of the possible applications of AI in the area of the design and operation of thermal powerplants, and a tentative list of the actually implemented applications: the fact that the latter is much longer than the former is a sure symptom that the field of 'AI applications to Process Engineering' is in its infancy. Since AI techniques have been successfully and extensively employed in fields other than powerplant design, it is likely that the topics covered in this book will enjoy a rapid development in the near future. The dissemination of AI-related concepts in indeed one of the scopes of this essay.
