[[ Free Reading ]] Thermal power plants: Energetic and exergetic approachesAuthor David Johnson – Stg2bio.co

This book offers an in depth thermodynamic analysis of the operation of the main types of thermal power plants An exergetic analysis adds to and substantially enriches the basic energetic approach The first chapter introduces the concept of exergy, highlights its subtle nature and develops a methodology to apply it to the analysis of power plant operation The following chapters are a series of monographs devoted to steam plants, gas turbines, combined cycle plants, internal combustion engines and cogeneration plants The systematic and comparative presentation of the energy and exergy balances of these plants constitutes an original approach which hopefully will prove of interestDavid Johnson s activities, both in teaching and research, were oriented towards basic mechanical engineering, namely mechanical vibrations,vehicle dynamics, aerospace dynamics, dynamics of machinery anddesign of machine elementsPierre Wauters est ingnieur civil mcanicien et lectricien de l UCL, o il a commenc enune carrire ininterrompue aux coles Spciales, devenues depuis l cole polytechnique de Louvain Il a enseign lUCL la thermodynamique, la mcanique des fluides, les turbomachines, lemploi des combustibles et l nergtique
