Fully updated to cover the latest energy systems and technologies, this in-depth guide emphasizes a portfolio approach in which a range of energy options are employedEnergy Systems Engineering Evaluation and Implementation, Second Edition presents a clear, well-organized, and technically useful look at the timely and many-faceted problem and challenge of developing and maintaining energy systems in a fast-changing world.The theme of the book is that an understanding of the three major primary energy sources – renewable, fossil, and nuclear – placed on a common footing and set in comparable terms can both help you understand individual technologies and the competitive context in which these sources exist today. Treatment of each technological area starts with information about ecological, social, and economic context. The book then uses the basic science and engineering knowledge common to most upper-level engineering and science undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals to quantitatively evaluate the function, capacity, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of the technology in question.New to this Edition:New technologies:new chapter on bio-energy; updated information on solar, wind, and alternative transportation energyNew tools:updates to cost-benefit case studies; probabilistic treatment of energy problems; and the technology penetration curveUpdated tables and figuresto reflect the latest information on demand and costExpanded collection of ancillary materials:homework and exam problems, slideshows, and other materialsBonus digital chapter:End-Use Energy EfficiencyComprehensive coverage:Systems Tools for Energy Systems; Economic Tools for Energy Systems; Climate Change & Climate Modeling; Fossil Fuel Resources; Stationary Combustion Technologies; Carbon Sequestration; Nuclear Energy; The Solar Resource; Solar Photovoltaic Technologies; Active Solar Thermal Applications; Passive Solar Thermal Applications; Wind Energy Systems; Bio-energy Resources & Systems; Transportation Energy Technologies; Systems Perspective on Transportation Energy; LCR and CF Data for Passive Solar Design; Numerical Answers to Select Problems; List of Key Conversion Factors

Francis M. Vanek, Ph.D., is a lecturer and research assistant in the Departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Systems Engineering Program at Cornell University, where he specializes in energy efficiency, alternative energy, and energy for transportation. He is also a consultant with Taitem Engineering in Ithaca.Louis D. Albright, Ph.D., is a professor of Biological and Environmental Engineering and Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellow at Cornell University. He is also a Fellow of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).Largus T. Angenent, Ph.D., is associate professor in the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University, Director of the Agricultural Waste Management Lab, and Faculty Fellow at the Cornell Center for a Sustainable Future.
