This book covers the essential theories of thermodynamics supported by a large number of
solved examples to enhance the vision of the students towards application of
thermodynamics in engineering practice. In this book, the author has addressed the
subtleties of the subject matter where students feel uncomfortable. The book has evolved
from class lecture notes prepared over the years, while teaching the subject and, therefore
presents the subject in a coherent and logical manner, covering all the nuances of
the subject. The whole book is divided into nine chapters, which cover all the fundamental
concepts of Zeroth, First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, Thermodynamic
Relations, the Concept of Availability, Exergy and Vapour, Gas Power Cycles, and
Thermodynamic Potential.

Anil K Berwal is a doctorate in thermal engineering and is presently heading the Centre of
Excellence for Energy and Environmental Studies at Deenbandhu Chhotu Ram University
of Science & Technology, Murthal. Prior to this, he taught the undergraduate students of
Department of Mechanical Engineering of the same university for about two decades. He
has more than 25 years of experience in teaching different subjects of thermal engineering
to undergraduate students of Mechanical Engineering and PG students of Energy Studies,
and also guided many M.Tech. and Ph.D. students. His areas of interest include Internal
Combustion Engine, Thermal Engineering, Waste Heat, Bio-fuel, and Solar Thermal
Systems. He has authored a book titled ‘Introduction to Mechanical Engineering’ and
published research papers in national & international conferences and journals as well. He
is also a certified energy auditor by BEE, GOI, and has worked on AICTE-funded R&D
project. He is presently working on NRED, Haryana & MNRE-supported Grid Tied SPVbased
solar power plant and solar-based vapour absorption system for space cooling. He
has served as member of various university bodies, like Academic Council, Board of
Studies, etc. Apart from this, he holds membership of various professional bodies, like Life
Member of Indian Association of Energy Management Professional (LMIAEMP), Solar
Energy Society of India (MSESI) and Indian Society of Technical Education (LMISTE).
