Energy optimization and integration of energy systems is becoming more important in today?s world, which is struggling with high energy prices, imminent energy shortages, and global pollution. Therefore, there is a strong need for sustainable energy supplies such as fuel cells that enjoy increasing interest due to their high efficiency and low pollution potential. This book covers the optimization and integration of energy systems. The author is a world-renowned specialist with extensive didactic experience. His systematic approach uses thermodynamics, kinetics and economics to study the effect of equipment size, environmental parameters and economic factors on optimal power production and heat integration. He shows that reduction of costs can be achieved, in particular costs of utilities common in the chemical industry. The 2e contains substantial revisions and modifications and focuses on the rapid progress in the field of fuel cells and discusses the latest developments in the energy theory on fuel cells and recent findings in the optimization and optical control of fuel cell systems.
