  • Exergoeconomic optimisation of a Kalina cycle for power generation

    It is shown that the use of an ammonia-water Kalina absorption power cycle as a bottoming cycle for a cogeneration plant may result in an economic advantage. This cycle was optimised using as a goal function the exergoeconomic unitary cost of the electricity produced by both the cogeneration plant and the absorption cycle. The Zoutendijk method of feasible directions was used for this ...
