Entropy and exergy in irreversible renewable energy systems

Author

Listed:
  • Lucia, Umberto

Abstract

Exergy and entropy generation analysis of the open systems allows to obtain a measure of how far the open real systems deviate from equilibrium with their environment. A link between entropy generation maximum principle and the exergy analysis of engineering and natural systems is suggested in order to use the exergy and entropy approach to improve the renewable energy systems.
