About this book

The production and consumption of energy carriers in complex buildings take place within the network of interconnected energy processes. For this reason, a change carried out in one energy process influences other energy processes. Therefore, all balance equations of energy carriers should be investigated as a whole, and energy management of complex buildings creates a large energy system with internal relationships between energy installations and the equipment, as well as external relationships with the environment.

Energy Systems of Complex Buildings presents the system approach to the energy-ecological analysis of energy management in complex buildings. Mathematical models of balancing the direct energy consumption, as well as cumulative energy consumption and cumulative emission of noxious substances are based on input-output analysis. Algorithms devoted to system analysis in the exploitation of energy management of complex buildings are included. In the case of ecological analysis, a new approach is presented basing on the idea of thermoecological costs. In this way, two groups of noxious influence (depletion of non-renewable energy resources and emissions of noxious substances) are taken into account. The LCA energy-ecological analysis of complex buildings has also been presented.

Students, building designers, energy auditors, and researchers will learn the methodology of evaluating the energy and ecological effects by applying new technologies and devices in buildings, which influence future investigations concerning the energy and ecological analysis of complex buildings.

About the authors

Andrzej Ziębik, Ph.D. D.Sc., Full Professor, graduated from the Silesian University of Technology, and was one of the first researchers in Poland working in the domain of applying the method of system analysis in energy management. His PhD thesis was devoted to mathematical modeling of industrial energy management on the example of ironworks. System analysis in industrial energy engineering was the topic of several PhD theses supervised by him. His book Mathematical modelling of energy management systems in industrial plants (Polish Academy of Science, Ossolineum 1990) was a summary of his and his PhD students’ works in the domain of system analysis in industrial energy engineering. His research interest was later extended, comprising system analysis in power and CHP plants, as well as municipal energy engineering. The latter topic was dealt with within the frame of Krzysztof Hoinka’s PhD thesis under his supervision. Professor Ziębik is the author or co-author of 17 books and over 300 periodical and conference papers.

 

Krzysztof Hoinka, PhD is an assistant professor at the Institute of Thermal Technology in the Silesian University of Technology in Poland. He is the author and co-author of 26 scientific publications. Fields of interest include mathematical modeling of energy management in complex buildings, optimization of thermal processes, combined heat and power generation, energy-environmental analysis.
