The present study investigates analytically the entropy generation in magnetized micropolar fluid flow in between two vertical concentric rotating cylinders of infinite length. The surface of the inner cylinder is heated while the surface of the outer cylinder is cooled. Internal heat generation (which arises in energy systems) is incorporated. The Eringen thermo-micropolar fluid model is used to simulate the micro-structural rheological flow characteristics in the annulus region. The flow is subjected to a constant, static, axial magnetic field. The surface of the inner cylinder is prescribed to be isothermal (constant temperature wall condition), whereas the surface of the outer cylinder was exposed to convection cooling. The conservation equations are normalized and closed-form solutions are obtained for the velocity, microrotation and temperature. These are thereafter utilized to derive the expressions for entropy generation number, Bejan number and total entropy generation rate. The effects of relevant thermo-physical parameters on the flow, heat and entropy generation rate are displayed graphically and interpreted at length. It is observed that the external magnetic force enhances the entropy production rate is minimum at the center point of the channel and maximum in the proximity of the inner cylinder. This causes more wear and tear at the surface of the inner cylinder. Greater Hartmann number also elevates microrotation values in the entire annulus region. The study is relevant to optimization of chemical engineering processes, nuclear engineering cooling systems and propulsion systems utilizing non-Newtonian fluids and magnetohydrodynamics.
