Exergy, Energy System Analysis, and Optimization theme is a component of the Encyclopedia of Energy Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources which is part of the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

These three volumes are organized into five different topics which represent the main scientific areas of the theme: 1. Exergy and Thermodynamic Analysis; 2. Thermoeconomic Analysis; 3. Modeling, Simulation and Optimization in Energy Systems; 4. Artificial Intelligence and Expert Systems in Energy Systems Analysis; 5. Sustainability Considerations in the Modeling of Energy Systems. Fundamentals and applications of characteristic methods are presented in these volumes. These three volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers and NGOs.

Christos A. Frangopoulos is Professor at the Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece. He received the Diploma in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering from the NTUA in 1971. After his military service (1971–1973), he worked as Superintendent Engineer of ship-owning companies, and as Head of the Diagnostic Center of a ship repairing company in Greece (1973–1979). He performed graduate studies in Mechanical Engineering with major in Thermal Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Ga., United States, leading to the M.Sc. degree (1980) and Ph.D. degree (1983). He joined the Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NTUA) as a faculty member in 1985. He lectures on marine engineering, as well as marine and land-based energy systems in both undergraduate and interdepartmental graduate courses. His research activity is related to the development and application of methods for analysis, evaluation, and optimal synthesis, design, and operation of energy systems (power plants, propulsion plants, heat recovery systems, cogeneration systems, etc.) by combining thermodynamic, economic, and environmental considerations. Second law (exergetic) analysis and internalization of environmental externalities are two particular subjects of this work. He has often given invited lectures on the results of his research in several countries. Among his publications are more than 40 papers in journals and international conferences and one book on cogeneration (in Greek)
