Sources of Combustion Irreversibility

Abstract

Approximately 1/3 of the useful energy of the fuel is destroyed during the combustion process used in electrical power generation. This study is an attempt to clarify and categorize the reasons for the exergy destruction taking place in combustion processes. The entropy production is separated into three subprocesses: (1) combined diffusion/fuel oxidation… (More)
