Summary

Appropriate for courses in Energy Systems. Analysis and Design of Energy Systems is the best text on the market for teaching a computer-based, advanced undergraduate course that involves realistic situations with an emphasis on solutions. It includes a large number of realistic examples and problems, with an emphasis on problem formulation and solution, not programming, and on component details. This edition includes MathCad as the arithmetic engine, and MathCad worksheets are included for every procedure in the book. Are you interested in a text that fully integrates MathCAD to offer your student more realistic, varied problems?

Features

  • NEW - All example problem solutions are in MathCad, and all procedures have been updated to reflect the use of arithmetic systems such as MathCad.
  • NEW - A new chapter, Chapter 6, on uncertainty in thermal systems calculations has been added:
    • As a reminder that uncertainties are present in all engineering computations,
    • To introduce a rational procedure to assess the uncertainties in thermal systems calculations,
    • And to provide examples illustrating the magnitudes of the uncertainties that can be expected in thermal systems calculations.
  • NEW - Lumped-mass analysis has been added to Chapter 7, Fluid Transients, comparing and contrasting the method of characteristics water hammer analysis with the lumped-parameter approach.
  • NEW - Chapter 5, System Simulation has been completely revised to take advantage of the capabilities of MathCad in system simulation.
  • NEW - Problems have been updated. Some problems have been converted to SI units, and some new problems have been added.
  • NEW - Manufacturers' data has been updated and extended; standards coverage has been updated and extended; and WWW addresses for manufacturers and organizations are provided.
  • NEW - Example problems have been increased by 40%, end of chapter problems have been increased by 39%, and review questions have increased by 27%.
  • Component emphasis guarantees exposure to piping systems, pumps, heat exchangers, and system concepts.
  • Extensive realistic examples and problems allow assignments from basic competencies to involved open-ended problems.
  • Procedures are congruent with solution techniques for better use of the students' and the instructor's time; they tend to force labeled schematics as the first step.
