Abstract: The power generation cycle using zeotropic mixture as working fluid has several advantages for recovery of low-grade finite heat sources. In this paper an exergetic analysis is carried out for regenerative partial-evaporation Rankine cycle with ammonia-water mixture. Based on the first and second laws of thermodynamics, the effects of the important system parameters on the exergetical performance of the system were theoretically investigated. The results showed that the second law efficiency has an optimum value with respect to the fluid quality at expander inlet as well as the ammonia mass fraction.

Keywords:Fast-converging sliding mode control (FCSMC), glowworm swarm optimization (GSO), finite system state convergence time, chattering, clean energy system.
