In the present tutorial, solar energy conversion is described in the framework of endoreversible thermodynamics, i.e. a recently developed subset of irreversible. Endoreversible thermodynamics form a subset of irreversible thermodynamics, more specifically of finite-time thermodynamics [1,2]. Modelling and calculations. Endoreversible thermodynamics is a non-equilibrium approach in .. of renewable energy conversion, as for instance in solar thermal power plants. The.

The physical framework used to describe the various conversions is endoreversible thermodynamics - a recently developed subset of irreversible thermodynamics. The book describes situations which are not in equilibrium and in which entropy is continuously created, but which are nevertheless stationary, that is, transient phenomena, oscillations, and so on are excluded.
Most undergraduate texts on thermodynamics emphasize equilibrium thermodynamics and reversible processes. The physical framework used to describe the various conversions is endoreversible thermodynamics - a recently developed subset of irreversible thermodynamics.

No entropy is created and conversion efficiencies are minimal - equal to Carnot efficiency.
For irreversible conversion processes, the reader learns only that entropy production is positive and that conversion efficiency is lower than Carnot efficiency. But how great the entropy creation is, and how low the efficiency, is usually not expressed.
In dealing with endoreversible thermodynamics, this text enables the reader to calculate the explicit values for a broad class of processes. It is demonstrated in the text that solar energy conversion is a process particularly suited to being described in this way.
This book illustrates general principles using idealized models, and technological examples are presented only to compare reality with theory. The language of the book is fairly mathematical, but the knowledge of anyone who has studied mathematics, physics or chemistry at university level should be able to follow the calculations. No differential equations are used.Google Scholar  A.
