The calculation of heat consumption is based on the First Law and it gives quantitative information about the energy used in drying. However, it does not pay any attention to the quality of the energy used in drying. To take into account the quality of the energy, attention must be paid to the Second Law, too. Especially in those cases where the energy used in drying may be converted to mechanical work, it is important to consider the Second Law is. In this paper, the energy efficiency of… CONTINUE READING
