ABSTRACT

 

The conventional approach followed in the evaluation of Rankine Powered Vapour Compression Refrigeration System using the first law of thermodynamics is proposed to be substituted by analyzing it from the viewpoint of second law of thermodynamics and thermoeconomics. This paper describes that Exergy clearly identifies efficiency improvements and reductions in thermodynamic losses attributable to green technologies. Exergy can be used to assess and improve energy systems by providing more useful and meaningful information than energy analysis. This article focuses on the development and state-of-the art of exergy analysis and thermoeconomics by leveraging conventional concepts of engineering economics to optimize the design and performance of thermal systems.

 

Keywords : Exergy, Exergy analysis, Thermoeconomics, Optimization, Exergetic efficiency, Exergy Destruction.
