Lecture 3 Air Standard Cycle

## Air Standard Cycle

A thermodynamic cycle in which the working fluid is
considered to be a perfect gas with such properties of air.
The following assumptions are commonly known as the air-standard
assumptions:
1. The working fluid is air, which continuously circulates in a closed loop (cycle). Air
is considered as ideal gas.
2. All the processes in (ideal) power cycles are internally reversible.
3. Combustion process is modeled by a heat-addition process from an external source.
4. The exhaust process is modeled by a heat-rejection process that restores the working
fluid (air) at its initial state.

## Assuming constant specific heats, (@25C) for air, is called cold-

air-standard assumption.

Assumptions :

## Air is a working fluid.

Air behave as an ideal gas.
Mass of air remains constant i.e. closed system analysis.
Specific heat of air remains constant.
The working fluid does not undergoes any chemical
changes.
All process are reversible.

Carnot Cycle
The most efficient heat engine cycle is the Carnot cycle,
consisting of two reversible isothermal processes and
In order to approach the Carnot efficiency, the processes
involved in the heat engine cycle must be reversible and
involve no change in entropy.
This means that the Carnot cycle is an idealization, since
no real engine processes are reversible and all real physical
processes involve some increase in entropy.

Lecture 3 Air Standard Cycle

Carnot Cycle
The conceptual value of the Carnot cycle is that it establishes
the maximum possible efficiency for an engine cycle operating
between TH and TC.

## It is not a practical engine cycle because the heat transfer into

the engine in the isothermal process is too slow to be of
practical value.

## As Schroeder puts it "So don't bother installing a Carnot

you would be passed on the highway by pedestrians."

fluid in a piston-cylinder device that does some
boundary work.
during which the system does work as the
working fluid temperature decreases from TH to
TL.
Process 3-4: The system is brought in contact
with a heat reservoir at TL < TH and a reversible
isothermal heat exchange takes place while work
of compression is done on the system.
Process 4-1: A reversible adiabatic compression
process increases the working fluid temperature

Otto Cycle
The Otto cycle is the ideal cycle for spark-ignition reciprocating
engines.

## It serves as the theoretical model for the gasoline engine.

Consists of four internally reversible processes.

## Heat is transferred to the working fluid at constant volume.

The Otto cycle consists of four internally reversible processes in
series.

Otto Cycle
The Otto cycle is executed in a closed system. Neglecting the changes
in potential and kinetic energies, the 1st law, on a unit mass base, can be
written:

## (qin - qout ) + (win - wout) = u kJ / kg

Where,
qin = u3 - u2 = cv (T3 - T2)
qout = u4 - u1 = cv (T4 - T1)

Typical compression ratios for spark-ignition engines are between
7 and 10. The thermal efficiency increases as the compression ratio
is increased. However, high compression ratios can lead to auto
ignition or engine knock.

Diesel Cycle
The Diesel cycle is the ideal cycle for compression ignition engines. It is
very similar to spark-ignition, expect the method of ignition. In diesel
engine, air compressed to a temperature that is above the ignition
temperature of the fuel.

## Comparison of the Otto and the

Diesel Cycle
Otto > Diesel for the same compression ratio

1. Diesel engines burn the fuel more completely since they usually
operate at lower rpm and air-fuel ratio is much higher than ignition-
spark engine.
2. Diesel engines compression ratios are typically between 12 and 24,
whereas spark-ignition (SI) engines are between 7 and 10.
3. Thus a diesel engine can tolerate a higher ratio since only air is
compressed in a diesel cycle and spark knock is not an issue

## Dual Cycle (Limited Pressure Cycle)

Combustion process in internal combustion engines either as
constant-volume (Otto cycle) or constant-pressure (Diesel
cycle) heat addition is overly simplified and it is not realistic.

## Dual cycle is a better representation of the combustion process

in both the gasoline and the diesel engines

Both the Otto and the Diesel cycles are special cases of the
dual cycle.

The Carnot Cycle has a low mean effective pressure
because of its low work output.
Hence, one of the modified forms of the cycle to produce
higher mean effective pressure whilst theoretically
achieving full Carnot cycle efficiency is the stirling cycle.

It consist of
Two isothermal Process
Two Constant Volume Process

## The heat addition and rejection take place at constant pressure as

well as isothermal process.
46
IC Engine | Module 1 | GLA University | Mr Nitin Kukreja 1/27/2017
Lecture 3 Air Standard Cycle

Ericsson Cycle
This cycle has a advantage over Carnot and Stirling Cycle is its
smaller pressure ration for a given ratio of maximum specific volume
with higher mean effective pressure.

Since the process 2 -3 and 3-4 are parallel to each other on the T-S
diagram, the net effect is that the heat added only at constant
temperature T3 = T4 and rejected at constant temperature T1 = T2.

## The Ericsson Cycle does not find practical application in piston

engine but is approached by a gas turbine employing a large number
of stages with heat exchanger, insulator and reheaters.

## In order to the compare the performance of Otto, Diesel and

Dual combustion cycles some the variable factors must be
fixed.
On the basis of following factors we will be finding which
cycle is more efficient for a given set of operating condition.
