Abstract

Energy efficiency has a great importance to reduce both fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, which are the most important focus points for researchers in maritime industry. Exergy analysis, which is widely used to design, analyze and evaluate thermal energy systems, plays an important role to increase energy efficiency. It reveals destruction of available energy in components and leads the researcher to achieve better engineering and systems. Advanced exergy analysis has the capability to reveal the interconnections among system components and improvement potential of inspected components and also the overall system.
