Abstract

Energy and exergy analyses were performed for each component in the system and the results tabulated. The variations of availability difference, irreversibility and efficiency with several parameters were graphically investigated. The results show that a clearer definition of the real losses in the system is given by the exergy method of analysis. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
