Summary  Introduction to Energy Analysis

1 Thermodynamics : The basis of energy analysis

Describe the first law of thermodynamics?Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but can only be converted from one form to the other (or from several forms combined to one or more other forms)

what is energy analysis?Energy analysis is the study of energy use, energy production and energy conversion in society.

Describe a number of energy number stages ?Extraction > Conversion> Transport> EndUse > EndUse
Storage Conversion
Distribution
Coal mining refineries Oil storage Boilers Heating
Wind turbines power plants electricity grids combined heat cooking
natural gas natural gas and power lighting
production transport plants 
Energy exists in many forms. give some examplesKinetic energy
potential energy
chemical energy
nuclear energy
electromagnetic radiation
electricity
heat 
The energy content can be determined for a given substance. Give some examplesan amount of coal
a certain volume of hot water 
The energy content is dependent on conditions like.. (give some examples)pressure and temperature, and is always determined in comparison to a reference state.

the energy content is then the amount of energy it takes to bring the substance from the reference state to the actual state.

in energy analysis, we generally use an environmental reference system, with the reference state for each chemical element the most stable naturallyoccurring compound of that element. give some examplescarbon = CO2
water = H20 
In practice, two slightly different concepts of energy content are used. which ones ?(internal) energy
enthalphy 
the change in internal energy of a substance is measured by ......adding (or removing) energy under constant volume

the change in enthalphy is measured by.......adding (or removing) energy under constant pressure

In practice enthalphy is usually used rather than the internal energy. Especially for solids and liquids, it is much easier to measure enthalphy, as measuring under constant pressure is easier than measuring under constant volume.

The relation between internal energy E and enthalphy H is as follows:
(geef de formule)H= E + p x V
H=enthalphy
E=internal energy (also often indicated with the letter U)
p=pressure
V=Volume
for solids and liquids, the difference between H and E is very small, but for gases the difference cannot generally be neglected 
Describe the second law of thermodynamics?In simple words: "heat cannot be fully converted into work"

describe the entropy concept (geef de formule)delta S = delta Q / T
delta S = entropy change
delta Q= heat extraction
T = Temperature 
calculate the amount of work that can be extracted from a thermal energy reservoir with constant temperature. (geef formule)W= Qh  Ql
W=the amount of work delivered
Qh=the heat extracted from the high temperature reservoir
Ql= the heat added to the low temperature reservoir
So the total entropy change of the process will be:
delta S = Qh/T  Ql /Tref
the second law says that the total of entropy changes in such a closed system is larger than or equal to zero. Now, let us first assume that we have an ideal process, where the entropy does not increase: delta S = 0.
For ideal processes the following formula can be used:
W= (1Tref/T) x Qh
we can conclude that for this ideal process, the maximum amount of work produced is always smaller than the heat extracted from the reservoir, which brings us back to our first formulation of the second law of thermodynamics.
