Discussion of Energy Consumption Analysis Method on Energy System
With the social rapid development, the earth's limited primary energy such as coal, oil, natural gas etc will be exhausted; energy problem has caused worldwide widespread attention. Therefore, under the development of renewable energy, without exception, each country is actively trying to explore the new theory and using energy-saving and technology to improve energy utilization ratio and reduce the energy consumption and the harm on environment. Scientific analysis of energy saving is an important link of digging energy saving potential, effective energy analysis method plays a pivotal role in implementing saving energy. This paper summarized several energy analysis methods on the basis of the first and second law of thermodynamics, introduced the most widely used enthalpy analysis method, entropy analysis, exergy analysis and exergy economic analysis which are based on the second law of thermodynamics, introduced emphatically the specific consumption analysis theory development with exergy analysis and exergy economic analysis.
