Exergy: Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development
This book deals with exergy and its applications to various energy systems and applications as a potential tool for design, analysis and optimization, and its role in minimizing and/or eliminating environmental impacts and providing 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 as outlined in the contents.
- Comprehensive coverage of exergy and its applications
- Connects exergy with three essential areas in terms of energy, environment and sustainable development
- Presents the most up-to-date information in the area with recent developments
- Provides a number of illustrative examples, practical applications, and case studies
- Easy to follow style, starting from the basics to the advanced systems

Efficiencies are often evaluated as ratios of energy quantities, and are often used
to assess and compare various systems. Power plants, heaters, refrigerators and
thermal storages, for example, are often compared based on energy ...
Dew point temperature: The dew point temperature is defined as the temperature
of moist air saturated at the same pressure and with the same humidity ratio as
that of a given sample of moist air (i.e., temperature at state 2 in Fig. 6.1).
Humidity ratio: The humidity ratio of moist air (or the mixing ratio) is defined as the
ratio of the mass of water vapor to the mass ... With the expressions for relative
humidity and humidity ratio in terms of pressure ratios in Eqs. (6.1) and (6.2), the
The proportionality between specific humidity ratio ω and specific humidity ratio
on a molal basis ̃ω is given by ̃ω = 1.608ω (6.10) where the humidity ratio is ω =
mv/ma (6.11) The exergy efficiency of an overall air-conditioning process, or the ...
