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 figuresto 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
