The basic gas turbine cycle is named for the Boston engineer, George Brayton, who first proposed the Brayton cycle around 1870.

Brayton Cycles:
Open Cycle
(Generally used in aircraft propulsion.)

Closed Cycle
(Electric power generation)

P-v AND T-s DIAGRAMS OF AN IDEAL BRAYTON CYCLE:
BRAYTON CYCLE CONSISTS OF: Reversible isentropic compression.(Process 1-2) Reversible isobaric heat addition.(Process 2-3)

## Reversible isentropic expansion.(Process 3-4)

Reversible isobaric heat rejection.(Process 4-1)

## BENGAL COLLEGE OF ENGI NEERING AND TECHNOLOGY

Theory Of Brayton Cycle:
Heat addition Qin=mcp(T3-T2) Heat rejection Qout=mcp(T4-T1) Then the thermal efficiency of the ideal Brayton cycle becomes th,Brayton =Wnet/Qin = 1-Qout/Qin =1-(T4-T1)/(T3-T2)

We know,
P1V1 P2V2 T1 = T2 and P1V1k=P2V2k

## BENGAL COLLEGE OF ENGI NEERING AND TECHNOLOGY

Theory Of Brayton Cycle:
Therefore, from the above equations we get: T2/T1=(P2/P1)(k-1)/k =(P3/P4)(k-1)/k=T3/T4
(Since Processes 1-2 and 3-4 are isentropic, and P2 = P3 and P4 = P1.)

Substituting these equations into the thermal efficiency relation and simplifying them th,Brayton =1-1/rp(k-1)/k

## Where rp=P2/P1,is known as Pressure Ratio.

Effect Of Pressure Ratio On Brayton Cycle:

The efficiency of the Brayton Cycle is a function of pressure ratio(rp ) as given by the following equation. th,Brayton =1-1/rp(k-1)/k

Effect Of Pressure Ratio on Brayton Cycle Efficiency:

With the increase in pressure ratio(rp) the efficiency also increases and tends to reach carnot efficiency(carnot).

Effect Of Pressure Ratio On Net Work Output:

With the increase in pressure ratio the net work increases and reaches a maximum value then reaches to zero at maximum value of the pressure ratio.

The Brayton Cycle with Regeneration:
In gas-turbine engines, the temperature of the exhaust gas leaving the turbine is often considerably higher than the temperature of the air leaving the compressor. Therefore, the high-pressure air leaving the compressor can be heated by transferring heat to it from the hot exhaust gases in a counter-flow heat exchanger, which is also known as a regenerator or recuperator.

Types of Recuperator:
1.Vertical Recuperator 2.Horizontal Recuperator

T-s diagram of a Brayton cycle with regeneration:
Here heat rejected from the process the process 4-6 is used to increase the inlet temperature from T2 to T5, in the process 2-5.

## Effect of Regeneration on Brayton Cycle Efficiency:

It increases the mean temperature of heat addition. It decreases the mean temperature of heat rejection. It increases the efficiency of the cycle.

Intercooling in Brayton Cycle:
The efficiency of Brayton Cycle may often be increased by using staged compression with Intercooling.

## BENGAL COLLEGE OF ENGI NEERING AND TECHNOLOGY

Reheating on Brayton Cycle:
The work output of the Brayton Cycle can be increased by using staged heat supply called reheat.

## BENGAL COLLEGE OF ENGI NEERING AND TECHNOLOGY

Brayton Cycle with Intercooling, Reheating, and Regeneration:
Regeneration may be used along with intercooling and reheating to increase the cycle efficiency.

Conclusion:
If the number of compression and expansion stages is increased, the ideal gasturbine cycle with intercooling, reheating, and regeneration will approach the Ericsson cycle and the thermal efficiency will approach the theoretical limit (the Carnot efficiency). That is, the thermal efficiency almost doubles as a result of regeneration, intercooling, and reheating.

## Use of Brayton Cycle:

It is used in gas power plants. All gas turbine engines. Air breathing jet engine.
