In this webinar, the engineering students and professionals get familiar with the simple and basic power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow and their T - s, p - V and h - T diagrams, ideal vs real operation and major performance trends when air is considered as the working fluid.

Performance Objectives:

Introduce basic energy conversion engineering assumptions and equations

Know basic elements of Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle, Diesel Cycle, compression, combustion and expansion processes and compressible flow (nozzle, diffuser and thrust) and their T - s, p - V and h - T diagrams

Be familiar with Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle, Diesel Cycle, compression, combustion, expansion and compressible flow (nozzle, diffuser and thrust) ideal vs real operation

Understand general Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle, Diesel Cycle, compression, combustion, expansion and compressible flow (nozzle, diffuser and thrust) performance trends
