Cogeneration Fuel Cell-Sorption Air Conditioning Systems (Green Energy and Technology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although conventional cogeneration systems have been used successfully in the last two decades, most of them have been large units using mainly hydrocarbon fuels that are becoming increasingly expensive. New cogeneration systems based on fuel cells and sorption air conditioning systems promise to be an energy-saving alternative for situations when cooling, heating and power are needed at low and medium capacities. Cogeneration Fuel Cell-Sorption Air Conditioning Systems examines the thermodynamic principles of fuel cell performance and sorption air conditioning systems, and gives relevant information about the state of the art of these technologies. It also provides the reader with the theoretical bases and knowledge needed to understand the operation of these new cogeneration systems, as well as discussing the design basis and economical evaluation. Topics covered include: selected fuel cells for cogeneration CHP processes; state-of-the-art sorption refrigeration systems; potential applications in demonstration projects; and profitability assessment of the cogeneration system. Air conditioning and fuel cell engineers; postgraduates and researchers in energy fields; and designers of cooling, heating and power cogeneration systems will find Cogeneration Fuel Cell-Sorption Air Conditioning Systems a useful and informative reference.

Synopsis:

Examining the thermodynamic principles of fuel cell performance and sorption air conditioning systems, this volume provides an overview of these technologies. The text explores how these systems operate, and presents a design basis and economical evaluation of novel cogeneration systems.

Synopsis:

Conventional cogeneration systems have been in use for over two decades, yet most of these are large units which require increasingly expensive hydrocarbon fuels.

Fuel cells are promising electrochemical systems for producing power from conventional and alternative energy resources. Despite considerable industrial and commercial development of this technology, the conversion efficiency of fuel cells is lower than existing systems. However, the R&D is focused on searching for new materials and processes in order to improve fuel cell efficiency and make the technology more competitive.

Novel cogeneration systems based on fuel cells and sorption air conditioning systems promise to be a good alternative for the development of new markets where cooling, heating and power are needed at low and medium capacities, as can be found in hospitals, residential and commercial buildings, etc.

Cogeneration Fuel Cell-Sorption Air Conditioning Systems not only explains the thermodynamic principles of the performance of fuel cells and sorption air conditioning systems, but also provides relevant information about the state of the art of these technologies to supply the reader with the theoretical base to understand the operation, design basis and economical evaluation of these novel cogeneration systems.
