Engineering Thermodynamics of Thermal Radiation: for Solar Power Utilization

by: Ryszard Petela


Abstract: Authoritative coverage of thermal radiation theory and potential applications in solar power energy generation. This comprehensive guide discusses in-depth fundamentals of radiation, and explains how to apply the theories presented to developing energy-generating devices. As solar radiation is considered more frequently as an attractive energy source, it is increasingly important for engineers to understand the laws of radiation.Thermal Radiation Engineering for Solar Power Energy Generation provides exhaustive discussions of energy and exergy theories. Three chapters are allocated to demonstrate installation examples of radiation energy. Appendices include constant values for radiation and application of mathematics to some thermodynamic relations for easy reference.
