An analysis of the entropy generation and the entropy production principle is carried out. Entropy generation principle is obtained from the entropy balance of the open systems with non-linear solution and considering the lifetime of any natural real process. The condistion of the stability of the open systems steady states are obtained in order to use the entropy generation maximum principle to analyse real open irreversible systems with non-linear solution.
