Overview

Profiting from Low-Grade Heat : Thermodynamic Cycles for Low-Temperature Heat Sources : The Watt Committe on Energy Report No. 26

This volume represents the findings of a Working Group of the Watt Committee on Energy. Its contributors argue that technology already exists for the greater use of waste (low-grade) heat during power generation and energy conversion. The topics covered range from the engineering process, through the theoretical background, through many of the engineering problems encountered and their potential solutions, to the economic aspects of low-grade heat. Examples are provided of commercially-viable operations already in existence.
