Handbook of Energy EngineeringeBook - 2008
& Francis Publishing
Covering the latest codes and standards and the Energy Independence and Security Act, this edition includes information on software packages from the Best Practices Program of the U.S. Department of Energy; and emerging technologies such as oxy-fuel combustion, high efficiency burners, enhanced heat exchangers, and ceramic membranes for heat recovery. This reference will guide you step by step in applying the principles of energy engineering and management to the design of electrical, HVAC, utility, process and building systems for both new design and retrofit projects. Topics covered include how to do an energy analysis of any system; electrical system optimization; state-of-the-art lighting and lighting controls; thermal storage; cogeneration; HVAC and building system optimization; compressed air systems; third party financing and much more. The text is thoroughly illustrated with tables, graphs, diagrams and sample problems.
This comprehensive treatment includes the latest codes and standards (including the Energy Independence and Security Act) and is suitable for classroom use as well as for use as a professional reference. Practitioner Thumann and Mehta (mechanical engineering, Bradley U.) include information on software packages and emerging technologies including oxy-fuel combustion, high efficiency burners, enhanced heat exchangers, and ceramic membranes for heat recovery along without a updates for this edition. They include chapters on energy economic analysis, energy auditing and accounting, electrical system optimization, waste heat recovery, Utilities System optimization, building system optimization (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), cogeneration, control systems, thermal storage, passive solar Energy Systems, energy management, compressed air system optimization, financing energy projects. They include an appendix with a wide range of valuable tables for computations. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
