Thermal System Design and Simulationcovers the fundamental analyses of thermal energy systems that enable users to effectively formulate their own simulation and optimal design procedures. This reference provides thorough guidance on how to formulate optimal design constraints and develop strategies to solve them with minimal computational effort.

The book uniquely illustrates the methodology of combining information flow diagrams to simplify system simulation procedures needed in optimal design. It also includes a comprehensive presentation on dynamics of thermal systems and the control systems needed to ensure safe operation at varying loads.

Designed to give readers the skills to develop their own customized software for simulating and designing thermal systems, this book is relevant for anyone interested in obtaining an advanced knowledge of thermal system analysis and design.

  • Contains detailed models of simulation for equipment in the most commonly used thermal engineering systems
  • Features illustrations for the methodology of using information flow diagrams to simplify system simulation procedures
  • Includes comprehensive global case studies of simulation and optimization of thermal systems
P L Dhar taught in the mechanical engineering department of IIT Delhi for over thirty six years. His research focused on Thermal System Simulation and Design, spanning a wide range from refrigeration to thermal power plant systems. Based on this work, he developed a post graduate course with the same title and taught it for over two de...
