Book Description

The Handbook of Energy Engineering covers the latest updates to codes and standards in the energy industry. The Eighth Edition features two new chapters on thermal storage and Occupants’ Behavior and Energy Consumption in Buildings. Also included are chapters on energy economic analysis, energy auditing, waste heat recovery, utility system optimization, HVAC, cogeneration, control systems, energy management, and compressed air system optimization. The book can act as a reference to guide you step-by-step in applying the principles of energy engineering and management to the design of electrical, HVAC, utility, process and building systems for both new design and retrofit projects. The text is thoroughly illustrated with tables, graphs, diagrams, and sample problems.

D. Paul Mehta, Ph.D., is a professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Bradley University, as well as being the department chairman. He earned his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Iowa State University in 1979. He has more than 35 years of teaching experience and has initiated, developed, and taught several undergraduate and graduate courses in energy engineering. He directed the graduate program in mechanical engineering at Bradley University for 18 years. His research interested include applications of control theory to heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and to manufacturing processes for the purpose of reducing energy consumption. He has published numerous research papers in that area. Dr. Mehta has also directed the Industrial Assessment Center at Bradley University since 1993. Under this program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, Dr. Mehta has assessed about 400 small- and medium-sized manufacturing plants for energy efficiency, waste minimization, and productivity enhancement.
