Advanced Energy Systems and Environment
Energy needs are increasing in all countries, especially in developing countries. Those working in the energy sector strive to provide high energy efficiency in energy systems, to reduce investment costs, and to reduce emissions that are thrown into the environment, which are very harmful to human health and cause climate changes. Even the most modern fossil fuel power plants, as will be explained later, can increase their thermal efficiency to 47-62% with combined power plants.
The aim of this book is to examine all existing Energy Production Systems (including nuclear energy systems), to be useful to undergraduate/graduate engineering students and practitioners working in the field of energy, who want to advance their knowledge on energy. This book is planned as eight chapters.
In each chapter of this book, how theoretical knowledge is used in practice and performance analysis are explained with example solutions. On the other hand, problems and reference sources are given at the end of each chapter. We believe that this book will be useful for Mechanical Engineering and Energy Engineering undergraduate and graduate students; At the same time, we think that it will be useful as a reference book for engineers and researchers who operate and design power plants.
