Abstract

A general interpretation of the thermodynamic efficiency for separation processes has been presented by treating these processes as first order steady systems. The thermodynamic efficiency is defined for uncoupled and coupled processes in a different manner. The measure of the exergy conservation is defined as efficiency for uncoupled processes, but in the case of coupled systems, such as separation. The ratio of consumed and produced entropy has to be defined as thermodynamic efficiency. After elucidating the so called ″coupling″ and ″overall″ efficiencies, and their different representations, a systematization of the various definitions is demonstrated.
