|Title:||Energy Consumption Pattern of Indian Transportation Sector and its Thermodynamic Analysis|
|Keywords:||Indian transportation sector;Energy consumption;Exergy;Improvement potential|
|Abstract:||The energy consumption pattern and thermodynamic analysis has been carried out of the Indian transportation sector considering its four subsectors viz. roadways, aviation, railways, and shipping. A period of 14 years between 2001/02 and 2014/15 has been considered to find the thermal efficiency and irreversible losses. The energy and exergy flow diagrams and the improvement potentials for this important sector are also presented. It was found that during the study period the overall exergy efficiencies (21.04% to 21.58%) were slightly less than the corresponding energy efficiencies (22.23% to 22.73%). The performance of the transportation sector of India has been compared to that of selected countries and is found to perform better than that of most countries (Iran, Canada, United Kingdom, etc.). This work also highlights the sectoral energy utilization and locates the sources responsible for lower efficiency of the Indian transportation sector.|
