## Assumptions of air standard cycle

Analyze three cycles
Otto

## Assumptions of Air Standard Cycle

Working fluid is air
Air is ideal gas
Combustion process is replaced by heat addition
process
Heat rejection is used to restore the fluid to its initial
state and complete the cycle
All processes are internally reversible
Constant or variable specific heats can be used

## Mean Effective Pressure

Mean Effective Pressure (MEP) is a fictitious
pressure, that if acted on the piston during the
entire power stroke, would produce the same
amount of net work.

## The net work output of

a cycle is equivalent to
the product of the mean
effect pressure and the
displacement volume

2-3 - Constant Volume Heat Addition
3-4 - Adiabatic Expansion (Isentropic)
4-1 - Constant Volume Heat Rejection

Performance of Cycle
Efficiency:

w net
=
q in

## Lets start by getting heat input:

q in = u 3 u 2
13

Cycle Performance
Get net work from energy balance of cycle:

w net = q in q out
Substituting for qin and qout:

w net = (u 3 u 2 ) (u 4 u1 )
Efficiency is then:

w net
=
q in

14

Cycle Performance
Substituting for net work and heat input:

(u 3 - u 2 ) - (u 4 - u1 )
=
(u 3 - u 2 )

(u 4 - u1 )
= 1
(u 3 - u 2 )
15

## Cold Air Standard Cycle

cp, cv, and k are constant at ambient
temperature ( 70 F) values.
Assumption will allow us to get a quick first
cutapproximation of performance of cycle.

16

## Cycle performance with cold air

cycle assumptions
If we assume constant specific heats:

(u 4 - u1 ) c v (T4 - T1 )
= 1
=
(u 3 - u 2 ) c v (T3 - T2 )
(T4 - T1 )
= 1
(T3 - T2 )
17

## Cycle performance with cold air

cycle assumptions
Because weve got two isentropic processes in
the cycle, T1 can be related to T2, and T3 can
be related to T4 with our ideal gas isentropic
relationships. Details are in the book!

## Effect of compression ratio on

Otto cycle efficiency

21

Sample Problem
The air at the beginning of the compression stroke of
an air-standard Otto cycle is at 95 kPa and 22C and
the cylinder volume is 5600 cm3. The compression
ratio is 9 and 8.6 kJ are added during the heat
(a)
the temperature and pressure after the
compression
and heat addition process
(b) the thermal efficiency of the cycle
Use cold air cycle assumptions.

Performance of cycle
Efficiency:

w net
=
q in

## Heat input occurs from 2 to 3 in

constant pressure process:

q in = h 3 h 2 Why enthalpies?
30

## Diesel Cycle Performance

Get net work from energy balance of cycle:

w net = q in q out
Substituting for qin and qout:

w net = (h 3 h 2 ) (u 4 u1 )
As we did with the Otto cycle:

w net
=
q in

31

## Diesel Cycle Performance

Substituting for net work and heat input:

(h 3 - h 2 ) - (u 4 - u1 )
=
(h 3 - h 2 )

(u 4 - u1 )
= 1
(h 3 - h 2 )
32

## For cold cycle analysis

c v (T4 - T1 )
(T4 - T1 )
= 1

c p (T3 - T2 )
k(T3 - T2 )
Its possible to rewrite this in a simpler form if we
define a new term:

## Efficiency is dependent on compression

ratio and cutoff ratio.

k = 1.4

## The thermal efficiency of the ideal Diesel cycle as a

function of compression and cutoff rates (k=1.4)

36

## Comparison between Otto and

Diesel cycles
For same compression ratio

## OTTO > DIESEL

For same combustion temperature

## DIESEL > OTTO

37

Sample Problem
A Diesel air-standard cycle has a compression ratio
of 15:1. The pressure and temperature at the
beginning of the compression are 100 kPa and 17 C,
respectively. If the maximum temperature of the
cycle is 2250 K, determine:
1. the cutoff ratio
2. the thermal efficiency
3. the mean effective pressure

Begin analysis
Look at cutoff ratio:

rc = V3 V2 = (mRT3 P3 ) / (m RT2 P2 )

rc = T3 T2 need T2
Get T2 from isentropic relationship:

T2 = T1 (V1 V2 )

k 1

## = (17 + 273)K (15)

T2 = 856.7 K
