- Conversion of Thermal EnergyAlmost all of the mechanical energy produced today is produced from the conversion of thermal energy in some sort of heat engine. The operation of all heat-engine cycles can usually be approximated by an ideal thermodynamic power cycle of some kind.A basic understanding of these cycles can often show the power engineer how to improve the operation and performance of the system. 2
- Conversion of Thermal EnergyAlmost all of the mechanical energy produced today is produced from the conversion of thermal energy in some sort of heat engine. The operation of all heat-engine cycles can usually be approximated by an ideal thermodynamic power cycle of some kind.A basic understanding of these cycles can often show the power engineer how to improve the operation and performance of the system. 3
- P- and T-s Diagrams of Power CyclesThe area under the heat addition process on a T-sdiagram is a geometric measure of the total heatsupplied during the cycle qin, and the area under theheat rejection process is a measure of the total heatrejected qout. The difference between these two (thearea enclosed by the cyclic curve) is the net heattransfer, which is also the net work produced duringthe cycle. 4
- Reversible Heat-Engine CyclesThe second law of thermodynamics states that it is impossible to construct a heat engine or to develop a power cycle that has a thermal efficiency of 100%. This means that at least part of the thermal energy transferred to a power cycle must be transferred to a low-temperature sink.There are four phenomena that render any thermodynamic process irreversible. They are: Friction Unrestrained expansion Mixing of different substances Transfer of heat across a finite temperature difference 5
- Categorize Cycles Thermodynamic cycles can be divided into twogeneral categories: Power cycles and refrigerationcycles. Thermodynamic cycles can also be categorized asgas cycles or vapor cycles, depending upon the phaseof the working fluid. Thermodynamic cycles can be categorized yetanother way: closed and open cycles. Heat engines are categorized as internal or externalcombustion engines. 6
- Air-Standard AssumptionsTo reduce the analysis of an actual gas power cycle to a manageable level, we utilize the following approximations, commonly know as the air- standard assumptions:1. The working fluid is air, which continuously circulates in a closed loop and always behaves as an ideal gas.2. All the processes that make up the cycle are internally reversible.3. The combustion process is replaced by a heat- addition process from an external source.4. The exhaust process is replaced by a heat rejection process that restores the working fluid to its initial state. 7
- Air-Standard CycleAnother assumption that is often utilized to simplifythe analysis even more is that the air has constantspecific heats whose values are determined at roomtemperature (25oC, or 77oF). When this assumption isutilized, the air-standard assumptions are called thecold-air-standard assumptions. A cycle for which theair-standard assumptions are applicable is frequentlyreferred to as an air-standard cycle.The air-standard assumptions stated above provideconsiderable simplification in the analysis withoutsignificantly deviating from the actual cycles.The simplified model enables us to study qualitativelythe influence of major parameters on the performanceof the actual engines. 8

- Mean Effective PressureThe ratio of the maximum volume formed in the cylinder tothe minimum (clearance) volume is called the compressionratio of the engine. V V r max BDC Vmin VTDCNotice that the compression ratio is avolume ratio and should not beconfused with the pressure ratio.Mean effective pressure (MEP) is afictitious pressure that, if it actedon the piston during the entirepower stroke, would produce thesame amount of net work as thatproduced during the actual cycle. MEP Wnet Vmax Vmin 10
- Three Ideal Power CyclesThree ideal power cycles are completely reversible power cycles, called externally reversible power cycles. These three ideal cycles are the Carnot cycle, the Ericsson cycle, and the Stirling Cycle. 11
- Three Ideal Power CyclesThe Carnot cycle is an externally reversible power cycle and is sometimes referred to as the optimum power cycle in thermodynamic textbooks. It is composed of two reversible isothermal processes and two reversible adiabatic (isentropic) processes.The Ericsson power cycle is another heat-engine cycle that is completely reversible or externally reversible. It is composed of two reversible isothermal processes and two reversible isobaric processes (with regenerator).The Stirling cycle is also an externally reversible heat- engine cycle and is the only one of the three ideal power cycles that has seen considerable practical application. It is composed of two reversible isothermal processes and two reversible isometric (constant volume) processes. 12
- Carnot Cycle and Its Value in EngineeringThe Carnot cycle is composedof four totally reversibleprocesses: isothermal heataddition, isentropic expansion,isothermal heat rejection, andisentropic compression (asshown in the P- diagram atright). The Carnot cycle can beexecuted in a closed system (apiston-cylinder device) or asteady-flow system (utilizingtwo turbines and two TL th ,Carnot 1compressors), and either a gas THor vapor can be used as theworking fluid. 13
- Internal-Combustion Engine Cycles Internal-combustion (IC) engines cannot operate onan ideal reversible heat-engine cycle but they can beapproximated by internally reversible cycles in whichall the processes are reversible except the heat-addition and heat-rejection processes.In general, IC engines are more polluting than external-combustion (EC) engines because of the formation of nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide, and unburned hydrocarbons.The Otto cycle is the basic thermodynamic power cycle for the spark-ignition (SI), internal- combustion engine. 14

- Otto Cycle: The ideal Cycle for Spark-Ignition EnginesFigures below show the actual and ideal cycles in spark-ignition (SI) engines and their P- diagrams. 16
- Ideal Otto Cycle The thermodynamic analysis of the actual four-stroke or two- stroke cycles can be simplified significantly if the air-standard assumptions are utilized. The T- s diagram of the Otto cycle is given in the figure at left.The ideal Otto cycle consists of four internallyreversible processes:12 Isentropic compression23 Constant volume heat addition34 Isentropic expansion41 Constant volume heat rejection 17

- Example IV-4.1: The Ideal Otto CycleAn ideal Otto cycle has acompression ratio of 8. At thebeginning of the compressionprocess, the air is at 100 kPa and17oC, and 800 kJ/kg of heat istransferred to air during theconstant-volume heat-additionprocess. Accounting for the variationof specific heats of air withtemperature,determine a) the maximum temperature and pressurethat occur during the cycle, b) the net work output, c)the thermal efficiency, and d) the mean effectivepressure for the cycle.
