Exergy of a system is maximum useful work possible during that brings the system into equilibrium with heat reservoir energy accounts for the irreversibility of due to increase in entropy. Effective energy utilization and its management for the minimizing irreversibility has made human to look for efficient energy consumption and conservation. Exergy analysis is a method that uses the conservation of the mass and conservation of energy principle together with the second law of thermodynamics for the analysis, design and improvement of the energy system and also to measure the system performance. Following system are taken as case study for carrying out exergy analysis as diesel engine.

Performance of some key observation has made and each presented in this project. Exergy could be use as the measure of the systems sustainability level, it shows quality of heat transfer process and energy is more complex measure for assessment cases than energy. The aim of this project is to analyze the exergy of some thermal system so that any process in the system which handle that having the largest exergy destruction can be identify that help thermal engineer to improve the performance of the components present in that system.
