Exergy – Aided Cost Optimization Using Evolutionary Algorithms
In this paper an algorithm is presented, which combines a powerful optimizing tool, Evolutionary Algorithms, with an exergo-economic analysis. The latter supports the optimizer by evaluating certain parameters as the exergetic efficiency and the relative cost difference. A simple cogeneration system has been chosen to illustrate this algorithm.
