HANDBOOK OF ENERGY ENGINEERING, FIFTH EDITION By Albert Thumann, P.E., C.E.M. and D. Paul Mehta, Ph.D.
This fully updated, comprehensive reference will guide you step by step in applying the principles of energy engineering and management to the design of electrical, HVAC, utility, process, and building systems for both new design and retrofit projects. You will learn how to do an energy analysis of any system. Detailed presentations cover electrical system optimization, state-of-the-art lighting and lighting controls, thermal storage, cogeneration, HVAC system optimization, HVAC and building controls, and computer technologies.
The fifth edition includes a new chapter covering codes, standards, and legislation, as well as a new chapter on compressed air systems. You'll also find coverage on use of innovative third party financing mechanisms such as performance contracting to implement energy cost reduction measures. The text is thoroughly illustrated with tables, graphs, diagrams, and sample problems with worked out solutions. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
