An optimization strategy for complex thermal systems is presented. The strategy is based on conventional techniques and incorporates assumptions and consequences of the exergetic cost theory (ECT) and of symbolic exergoeconomics. In addition to the results obtained by conventional techniques, this method provides valuable information about the interaction of components.
