Energy: Concepts and Applications

Thermodynamic Concepts and Methods

In this chapter, two key subjects of thermodynamics, such as energy and exergy, and their related concepts are introduced and discussed. Also, a close relationship between energy and thermodynamics is provided in a historical perspective, and the thermodynamic systems and definitions are discussed. Various states and state conditions for different cases are presented to better illustrate the system design and analysis aspects. Furthermore, some examples are presented to cover various of forms of energy, namely light, fuels, biomass, nuclear, wind, geothermal and hydro
