Power Cycles Ideal vs Real Operation AnalysisAuthor: Gordan Feric
The simple and basic power cycles (Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle and Diesel Cycle) are presented in this course material.In the presented power cycle analysis, air is used as the working fluid.
For each power cycle, the thermal efficiency derivation is presented with a simple mathematical approach. Also, for each power cycle, a T - s diagram and cycle major performance trends (thermal efficiency, specific power output and power output) are plotted in a few figures as a function of compression ratio, turbine inlet temperature and/or final combustion temperature, working fluid mass flow rate and both isentropic compression and expansion efficiency. It should be noted that this course material does not deal with costs (capital, operational or maintenance).
In this course material, the student gets familiar with the simple and basic power cycles, their components, T - s and p - V diagrams, operation and major performance trends.
