Combined Power and Process: - An Exergy Approach by Frederick J. Barclay

By Frederick J. Barclay

A completely revised and redesigned version of this wonderful name, formerly released in 1995.

the sensible software of moment legislations power research and linked thermoeconomics is more and more producing sensible functions. it's the goal of mixed strength and method – An Exergy method to speed up this approach by way of offering chosen examples of functions which reveal the clean and changed experience of share available from exergy equipment.

utilizing exergy research consciousness is effectively channelled in the direction of monetary development, and this booklet can therefore be instructed as a worthy relief to all these engineers and architects linked to the research of engineering tasks regarding, for instance, energy new release, thermal methods, chemical reactions, electrolysis, or osmosis, to call yet a number of.

Example text

In other words most of the fuel chemical exergy is immediately destroyed. CHP on the other hand uses the fuel heat at engine temperature, with minimum degradation. There is some significant degradation in heat exchange between the engine exhaust and the exhaust heat recovery boiler, which has to be looked at in optimization studies, but this pales into insignificance beside the exergy destruction in a low pressure steam generator. For a large-scale chemical plant requiring a heat supply to a group of processes, a CHP scheme allied to competent process integration is unlikely to have a rival, albeit the fuel utilization factor will misrepresent its performance, which has to be on the basis of exergy output/exergy input.

Any other sequence involves irreversible heat exchange with the environment, through a finite temperature difference. Using the sign convention of equation (l), that work d Wdone on the system is positive, d e , dS, and dUentering the system are also positive so that, for example, Rankine cycle feed pump work is positive. Then in Fig. 5 during: (a) isentropic expansion dW=dU, and W=-(U2- U,),while S,=S,. (5) (b) isothermal compression dW=-dU+dQ, and W=+(Uo-U,)- To(So-S,) (c) piston displacement work against Po W=-PoW2- v2> + K O - v*>> (6) (7) Hence net work = U, - Uo+ To(Sl- So)- Po(Vo- VI) = u,+Pov,- ToS,- ( uo+ Povo-TOSO) = Absolute thermomechanical exergy = 5, (8) (9) Note that the above argument can be extended to deduce the Carnot efficiency, independent of the working gas properties.

3. Brine enters via an orifice, and the flow profile is a conventional 'vena contracta', after which flashing commences. In the base of the flash box a piece of angle iron is sufficient to precipitate a two-phase hydraulic jump, which increases the head and depth ahead of the orifice leading to the next flash box, and suppresses flashing. The process repeats with all flash boxes at one level. By calculating the inlet thermochemical mass exergy and the outlet chemical mass exergy, the efficiency of the process can be arrived at with no knowledge of its internals.
