SECOND-LAW ANALYSIS AND AVAILABLE ENERGY
SECOND-LAW ANALYSIS AND AVAILABLE ENERGYby Jung-Yang SanA thermodynamic system is composed of several processes. In the processes, energy is never destroyed. Through an energy-balanced analysis (first-law analysis), the thermodynamic states of the processes and the overall efficiency of the system can be obtained. Nevertheless, in real processes, the capability of the working substance to convert other forms of energy into work is continuously decreased. The result of the energy-balanced analysis is unable to provide an evaluation of the inefficiencies in the processes. For accurately locating the major inefficiencies in the system and identifying the causes of the inefficiencies, in addition to the energy-balan…
