Hi everyone! I have to split the entropy generation of this system into the species according to the individual component. As far as I know, the entropy generation can only obtain for a whole system but not for separated elements. I got stuck here and cannot go further in my research. So, is there any method to estimate the amount of entropy generation in a single component? Can anyone help me to solve this issue? Many thanks for your help!
Dear @Chester Miller!
I separated the system into 4 individual elements as in the attached figure, and then apply the theorem dSgen/dt = dS/dt - sum[q(1/Tlow - 1/Thigh)] for each element to obtain the Entropy generation inside it. Is it right? Could you give me some suggestions?
Thanks for your help!
