Exergoeconomic analysis, a simultaneous investigation of exergetic and monetary performance has attained significant attention to analyze and improve the performance of energy conversion systems. This combined analysis allows an individual audit of all the components in the system. The research is particularly useful for multi-component systems to get a better understanding of how effectively each component consumes energy and economic capital. This chapter aims to present a comprehensive theoretical framework for exergoeconomic study of thermal systems. For this purpose, the framework is initially developed for standalone heat exchangers and then extended to commercial-scale thermal desalination systems consisting of preheaters, pumps, evaporators, and compressors, etc. The exergetic and economic values of each stream in the system were evaluated using the developed framework. The sensitivity and parametric analysis of different thermodynamic and economic parameters on the system performance was conducted to study the performance variations. The presented model can be generalized for performance analysis of other systems.
