Özet

In this study, an exergy optimization has been performed for a cogeneration plant consisting of an irreversible Carnot heat engine. In the analysis, different objective functions have been defined based on alternative performance criteria and the optimum values of the design parameters of a cogeneration cycle were determined for different criteria. In this context, the effects of irreversibilities on the exergetic performance are investigated, and the results are discussed.
