MAE 241 – Homework 2 Page 2 of 2 Problem 7 On a recent energy assessment performed to an industrial facility in Tempe by a team of ASU’s Industrial Assessment Center, the team evaluated a boiler whose rated input was 6 MBTUH (6 million BTU per hour). After measuring the composition of flue gases it was apparent that the boiler was not be operating at its best operating point; this suspicion was validated by determining that the combustion efficiency was equal to 0.65.

Taking the cost of energy to be $13 per MBTU, determine: a. The annual energy cost. b. The annual cost savings as a result of tuning up the boiler. c. List the assumptions used in your computations.
