Exergy Analysis of Heating and Cooling presents a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental theory and design of various complex heating and cooling systems. It develops a methodology for the reader to analyze the performance of thermodynamic heating and cooling systems, including known and emerging technologies of the future. The formulation of system and subsystem boundaries are discussed to ensure readers can evaluate the whole chain of processes, from primary exergies to useful exergy services. Numerous examples that illustrate how to identify causes for, and solutions to, exergy efficiency are included to increase clarity and understanding for readers. The authors evaluate advanced thermodynamic systems by precisely identifying the design and operating parameters which may cause inefficiencies. This book solves common problems and mathematical equations for those working and researching in heating and cooling, thermodynamics and thermal energy engineering systems.

Daniel Favrat is professor emeritus at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and former director of EPFL Energy Center. Previously he was director of the Industrial Energy Systems Laboratory of EPFL for 25 years. His research includes systemic analyses in what is called environomics (a contraction of energy, environment and economics) for a more efficient design of integrated technologies based on both fossil and renewable energies. He also contributes to the design of advanced equipment for a more rational use of energy including heat pumps, fuel cells and District heating and cooling networks. He co-authored many journal papers on exergy and several books on thermodynamics and exergy. He is vice-chairman of the energy committee of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations and member of the editorial board of Energy. He is also a member of the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences and of the French National Academy of Technologies. He is also president of the international foundation for films on energy (fifel.ch), cofounder of ExerGo.ch and a fellow of Presans.com.
