 Transcript Thermodynamic Cycles • Look at different cycles that approximate real processes

• You can categorize these processes several different ways• Power Cycles vs. Refrigeration• Gas vs. Vapor• Closed vs. open• Internal Combustion vs. External Combustion Power Cycles

• Otto Cycle• Spark Ignition

• Diesel Cycle• Brayton Cycle

• Gas Turbine

• Rankine Cycle

These are all heat engines. They convert heat to work, so the efficiency is: Ideal Cycles

• We’ll be using ideal cycles to analyze real systems, so lets start with the only ideal cycle we’ve studied so far

Carnot Cycle W Q

Q-W=0 Q=WIn addition, we know that the efficiency for a

Carnot Cycle is:

η th CarnotL

H

TT, = −1 Carnot Cycle is not a good model for most real processes

• For example• Internal combustion engine• Gas turbine

• We need to develop a new model, that is still ideal Air-Standard Assumptions

• Air continuously circulates in a closed loop and behaves as an ideal gas

• All the processes are internally reversible

• Combustion is replaced by a heat-addition process from the outside

• Heat rejection replaces the exhaust process

• Also assume a constant value for Cp, evaluated at room temperature Terminology for Reciprocating Devices

Is this the same as the Carnot efficiency? Efficiency of the Otto Cycle vs. Carnot Cycle

• There are only two temperatures in the Carnot cycle• Heat is added at TH

• Heat is rejected at TL

• There are four temperatures in the Otto cycle!!• Heat is added over a range of temperatures• Heat is rejected over a range of temperatures 1

Increasing Compression Ratio Increases the Efficiency

Typical Compression Ratios for Gasoline Engines Why not use higher compression Ratios?

• Premature Ignition• Causes “Knock”• Reduces the Efficiency• Mechanically need a better design Diesel Engines

• No spark plug• Fuel is sprayed into hot compressed air State Diagrams for the Diesel Cycle Diesel Cycle Otto Cycle

The only difference is in process 2-3 Consider Process 2-3

• This is the step where heat is transferred into the system

• We model it as constant pressure instead of constant volume

Consider Process 4-1• This is where heat is rejected• We model this as a constant v process

• That means there is no boundary work
