Comparison of the levelized cost and thermoeconomic methodologies – Cost allocation in a solar polygeneration plant to produce power, desalted water, cooling and process heat
The present work shows a comparison between the levelized cost and the thermoeconomic methods in their application to assess the performance of a solar polygeneration plant. The aim is to analyze the costs allocation ...
Exergy-based method for analyzing the composition of the electricity cost generated in gas-fired combined cycle plants
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2008)
The proposed method to analyze the composition of the cost of electricity is based on the energy conversion processes and the destruction of the exergy through the several thermodynamic processes that comprise a combined ...
