2.3 MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, Thermodynamics
A mechanical plant that involves an exergy recycle is presented for analysis. It consists of gearboxes and a fluid coupling. There is one input of shaft power to the plant and there are three separate outputs of shaft power. An exergetic cost analysis approach is outlined and applied to the plant.
