The physical framework used to describe the various conversions is endoreversible thermodynamics, a recently developed subset of irreversible thermodynamics. Items which are printed to order are normally despatched and charged within days.
The present book describes various forms of solar energy conversion techniques in a unified way. It thus studies situations which are not in equilibrium and in which therefore entropy is continuously created. For irreversible conversion processes, the reader learns only that entropy production is positive and that conversion efficiency is lower than Carnot efficiency. Describe the connection issue. Part 2 The solar system: No entropy is created and conversion efficiencies are maximal, equal to the Carnot efficiency.

For irreversible conversion processes, the reader learns only that entropy production is positive and that conversion efficiency is lower than the Carnot efficiency.

Nevertheless the mathematics is simple, because the authors consider only stationary situations. But how great the entropy creation is, and how low the efficiency, is usually not expressed.

Endoreversible thermodynamics gives the opportunity to calculate explicit values for a broad class of these processes, including solar energy conversion, which is particularly suited to being described in this way.
