Thermodynamic and economic analysis of a solar thermal powered adsorption cooling system
Demirocak, Derviş Emre; Baker, Derek Keıth; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
In this thesis, yearly performance of the solar adsorption cooling system which is proposed to be installed to a residential building in Antalya is theoretically investigated in detail. Firstly, thermodynamic designs of the adsorption cooling cycle for three different types of cycles which are intermittent, heat recovery and heat & mass recovery cycles are presented. Secondly, adsorption characteristics of three adsorbent/adsorbate pairs which are zeolite-water, silica gel-water and activated carbon-methano...
Thermodynamic and thermoeconomic comparison of combined cycle cogeneration systems
Colpan, Can O.; Yesin, Tulay (2006-01-01)
In this paper, several configurations of combined cycle cogeneration systems are investigated by energy, exergy and thermoeconomic analyses. In each of these configurations, varying steam demand is considered rather than fixed steam demand. Among the different approaches for thermoeconomic analysis in the literature, the specific exergy costing method is applied. Since the systems have more than one product (process steam and electrical power), systems are divided into several sub-systems and cost balances ...

Thermodynamic and structural design and analysis of a novel turbo rotary engine
Ercan, Taylan; Akmandor, İbrahim Sinan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2005)
A novel turbo rotary engine, operating according to a novel thermodynamic cycle, having an efficient compression phase, a limited temperature combustion phase followed by a long power extraction phase is designed. Thermodynamic and structural design and analysis of this novel engine is carried out and two prototypes are manufactured according to these analysis. High performance figures such as torque, power and low specific fuel consumption are calculated. Also the component tests of the manufactured protot...
Thermodynamic limits to thermal regeneration in adsorption cooling cycles
Baker, Derek Keıth (Elsevier BV, 2008-01-01)
Energy and exergy models for ideal adsorption cycles with isothermal beds and no mass recovery are developed to predict the limits to COP enhancement using thermal regeneration. The models are applied to compare the performance of zeolite-water and silica gel-water adsorbent-refrigerant pairs over a range of maximum bed temperatures. The thermodynamic consistencies of several alternate adsorption property assumptions are quantified. Differences in adsorption characteristics between zeolite-water and silica ...
