The purpose of this paper is to present a new kind of diagram for representing exergy balance and supporting the engineer in his diagnosing step. The diagram relies on the computation of exergetic indicators (exergetic efficiency, irreversibility and exergy losses) of each unit operation making up the whole system. The use of the new graphical representation is illustrated through an example of a gas turbine.
