9780071787789: Energy Systems Engineering: Evaluation and Implementation, Second Edition

The defining guide to energy systems engineering--updated for the latest technologies

"Broad in scope, with focused instructional detail, this text offers a uniquely excellent, student-accessible educational resource for integrating thermodynamic, alternative, and renewable energy conversion processes." -- Professor Randy L. Vander Wal, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Penn State University

"A carefully written book, providing good breadth as well as depth on major conventional and sustainable energy systems." -- Professor David Dillard, Department of Engineering Science & Mechanics, Virginia Tech

Fully revised throughout, Energy Systems Engineering, Second Edition discusses fossil, nuclear, and renewable energy sources, emphasizing a technology-neutral, portfolio approach to energy systems options. The book covers major energy technologies, describing how they work, how they are quantitatively evaluated, their cost, and their benefit or impact on the natural environment.

Evaluating project scope, cost, energy consumption, and technical efficiency is clearly addressed. Example problems help you to quantify the performance of each technology and better assess its potential. Hundreds of illustrations and end-of-chapter exercises aid in your understanding of the concepts presented in this practical guide.

Coverage includes:

  • Systems and economic tools for energy systems
  • Climate change and climate modeling
  • Fossil fuel resources
  • Stationary combustion systems
  • Carbon sequestration
  • Nuclear energy systems
  • Solar resource evaluation
  • Solar photovoltaic technologies
  • Active and passive solar thermal systems
  • Wind energy systems
  • New chapter on energy from biological sources
  • Transportation energy technologies
  • Systems perspective on transportation engineering

About the Author:

Francis M. Vanek, Ph.D., is a lecturer and research assistant in the Departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Systems Engineering Program at Cornell University, where he specializes in energy efficiency, alternative energy, and energy for transportation. He is also a consultant with Taitem Engineering in Ithaca.

Louis D. Albright, Ph.D., is a professor of Biological and Environmental Engineering and Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellow at Cornell University. He is also a Fellow of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).

Largus T. Angenent, Ph.D., is associate professor in the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University, Director of the Agricultural Waste Management Lab, and Faculty Fellow at the Cornell Center for a Sustainable Future. He specializes in converting organic biomass and waste materials into bio-energy, specific energy carrying products such as methane, carboxylates, and n-butanol. Dr. Angenent also works in the areas of biosensors and bio-aerosols.

Descripción McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Fully updated to cover the latest energy systems and technologies, this in-depth guide emphasizes a portfolio approach in which a range of energy options are employed Energy Systems Engineering Evaluation and Implementation, Second Edition presents a clear, well-organized, and technically useful look at the timely and many-faceted problem and challenge of developing and maintaining energy systems in a fast-changing world. The theme of the book is that an understanding of the three major primary energy sources -- renewable, fossil, and nuclear -- placed on a common footing and set in comparable terms can both help you understand individual technologies and the competitive context in which these sources exist today. Treatment of each technological area starts with information about ecological, social, and economic context. The book then uses the basic science and engineering knowledge common to most upper-level engineering and science undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals to quantitatively evaluate the function, capacity, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of the technology in question. New to this Edition: New technologies: new chapter on bio-energy; updated information on solar, wind, and alternative transportation energy New tools: updates to cost-benefit case studies; probabilistic treatment of energy problems; and the technology penetration curve Updated tables and figures to reflect the latest information on demand and cost Expanded collection of ancillary materials: homework and exam problems, slideshows, and other materials Bonus digital chapter: End-Use Energy Efficiency Comprehensive coverage: Systems Tools for Energy Systems; Economic Tools for Energy Systems; Climate Change Climate Modeling; Fossil Fuel Resources; Stationary Combustion Technologies; Carbon Sequestration; Nuclear Energy; The Solar Resource; Solar Photovoltaic Technologies; Active Solar Thermal Applications; Passive Solar Thermal Applications; Wind Energy Systems; Bio-energy Resources Systems; Transportation Energy Technologies; Systems Perspective on Transportation Energy; LCR and CF Data for Passive Solar Design; Numerical Answers to Select Problems; List of Key Conversion Factors.
