Applied Energy Systems - Rudimentary Thermodynamics
McGovern, Jim
This is a compact textbook for a module addressing rudimentary thermodynamics within the context of applied energy systems. It is at an introductory level for engineers or technologists. The book does not attempt to cover the principles of thermodynamics comprehensively. Rather, it provides a practical but theoretically sound foundation, linked to some key areas. Energy, heat and work are all introduced, as are units and dimensions. Ideal gases and properties of liquids and vapours are treated. Non-flow and steady flow processes are described. Simple theory is provided for pumps and for the reciprocating compressor. Rudimentary steam and refrigeration or heat pump cycles are explained. Property tables are included. A separate solutions manual is provided.
Keyword(s): applied energy systems; thermodynamics; tables for water substance; tables for refrigerant 134a; non-flow process; steady-flow process; reciprocating compressor; steam power cycle; refrigeration cycle; heat pump cycle; Heat Transfer, Combustion; Power and Energy
