Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The current emphasis on energy savings and environmental issues, related to power generation, have prompted both researchers and industries to find high efficiency and low emission solutions. The current approach to meet the environmental and efficiency targets are based upon combined thermal plant whether it be CHP, tri-generation or more exotic combination of cycles that could include for instance desalination plant and gas turbine inlet air cooling. Mathematical models based on the first and second laws of thermodynamics are the starting point for any analysis but performance criteria based on the concept of Exergy are not generally understood or well applied. This special issue will give authors the opportunity to disseminate their recent findings and developments in Exergy studies with the aim to share through the global media the current state of the art in Exergy research and analysis applied to Energy Systems.
