Exergetic Optimization of Power Generation Systems

Description

With increasing global population and dwindling energy sources, generation of energy with minimum waste and environmental footprint becomes one of the greatest challenges of our time. In this regard, exergy analysis has been used increasingly during the last several decades in the performance analysis of energy systems by industries and governments throughout the world, particularly with the aim of improving energy sustainability. Exergy analysis is a powerful thermodynamic technique to acquire an in-depth understanding of the performance of processes, devices and systems through analyzing the true magnitude of losses, and their causes and locations in a wide range of applications. It is a valuable tool for the design, analysis, assessment, and optimization of energy conversion systems and chemical processes to enhance the efficiency, reduce the cost, and minimize the environmental impacts and to provide a sustainable development.

This special issue is intended to present and discuss the comprehensive utilization of exergy analysis on all facets of exergy and its applications to push the envelope in cutting-edge technologies for a wide range of advanced energy systems.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Traditional fossil fuels and potential alternative fuels or fuel sources for power generation
  • Exergy, exergoeconomic, and exergoenvironmental analyses of power generation systems
  • CHP, CCHP, and integrated energy systems
  • Renewable energy-based power generation systems
  • Advanced power generation systems
  • Nuclear power for power production
  • Exergy based efficiency, cost, and environmental impcats assessment
