Comments on "Analysis of heat transfer and irreversibility of ORC evaporator for selecting working fluid and operating conditions"

ABSTRACT
Commentaries are presented on Ye et al. [1]'s paper, where the authors investigated the performance of heat transfer in evaporator under the case that the parameters of the heat source and temperature of pinch point were identified. They utilized the graphical method of temperature-heat (T-Q) diagram analysis. Also, they utilized the entransy principle in their analysis. Commentaries show the reality that the graphical method of temperature-heat (T-Q) diagram analysis belongs to Professor Adrian Bejan, who first proposed it in 1977. In addition, many instances in the literature are given to indicate disputes for the entransy principle by oppositionists of "entransy" from various countries.
