Wind Energy Creation 5. Contents Part 1 Radiation: This item is printed to order. Endoreversible thermodynamics gives the opportunity to calculate explicit values for a broad class of these processes, including solar energy conversion, which is particularly suited to being described in this way.

It is demonstrated in the text that solar energy conversion is a process particularly suited to being described in this way. It thus studies situations which are not in equilibrium and in which tyermodynamics entropy is continuously created.
No entropy is created and conversion efficiencies are maximal, equal to the Carnot efficiency. Part 3 Thermodynamical engines: Patterns, Principles, and Perspectives A. But how great the entropy creation is, and how low the efficiency, is usually not expressed. This book aims to describe various forms of solar energy conversion eneergy a unified way.
