Power and Efficiency in Energy Conversion and Storage: Basic Physics and Concepts
This textbook provides the fundamental theoretical concepts of how to describe and optimize devices for energy conversion and storage. Focusing on power-efficiency relations which are the main ingredient for optimization, relations will be derived and discussed for various prototype systems like batteries, electro-motors, heat engines, solar, photodiodes, piezo-electrics, wind turbines etc. In contrast to other books, all models will be constrained to the simplest basics, allowing non-experts and beginners to easily grasp the essentials.
