Abstract

The technique of energetic optimization is employed to investigate the optimal performance of a corrugated, collector-driven, irreversible Carnot heat engine and an absorption refrigerator. A minimum operating parameter and a relation between the maximum overall efficiencies are obtained for the systems under consideration. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
