Chapter 1: Basic Definitions, Terminologies and Concepts

1.1 UThermodynamics:U It is a basic science that deals with: 
1. Energy transformation from one form to another.
2. Various properties of substances.
UThermodynamics can be classified into: 
1. Macroscopic or Classical Thermodynamics: It does not require the knowledge of the molecules
or atoms behavior.
2. Microscopic or Statistical Thermodynamics: It is based on the behavior of the molecules and
atoms.
UApplications:U Thermodynamic laws and principles are very important tools to get the energy transfer or
fluid properties involved in many engineering systems such as: aero planes, power plants, cars, rockets,
heaters …… etc
UUnitsU: the units that will be used in this course are the SI units:
SI: kg, N, m, s (primary), J, W…(Secondary)
Joule, J = N.m = kg.m

/s

Watt, w = J/s = kg.m

3
Dimensional homogeneity: This rule is very simple, yet very powerful in any engineering analysis. It
states that every term in an equation must have the same units of the other terms. For example:
E = 1/2 mv
2
+
gz (This equation is wrong because different units are added together)
kJ + kJ/kg
In the above equation “E” stands for the total energy (kJ), the term (1/2mv
2
) is the kinetic energy (kJ), but
the term (gz) is the potential energy per unit mass (kJ/kg). As such, adding the first term to the second term
is wrong and causes unrealistic engineering results. In summary: you have to be sure that all the terms in
any equation must have the same units.
1.2 System: In thermodynamic studies, a quantity of matter or a region in
space chosen for studying energy transformation is selected. This quantity
or region is called system. The region outside the system is called the
surroundings. The real or imaginary surface that separates the system from
the surroundings is called the boundary (Fig.1.1).
Remember that the boundary can be fixed (steam in a rigid tank) or moving
(a gas in an elastic balloon). In the moving boundary, the balloon surface
(boundary) changes in size or shape.
1.2.1 Closed system: The mass of the fluid such as air or steam doesn’t cross (enter or leave) the system
boundaries, but energy (heat, work…) can cross the boundary (to or from the system). The boundary of the
closed system can be fixed (Fig.1.2) or moving (Fig. 1.3)
Examples of closed system: heated or cooled fluid in a pistoncylinder device or in a closed vessel (tank or
container).
Fig. 1
Fig 1.2: Mass cannot cross the boundaries of
a closed system, but energy can.
Fig 1.3 A closed system with a moving
boundary

Fig 1.4: An open system (a control
volume) with one inlet and one exit.
1.2.2 Open system (control volume): It is a region in the space that
involves mass and energy flow. This means that mass or fluid can cross
the system boundaries (Fig. 1.4)
Examples: Energy and mass cross the boundaries of the following open
systems: Turbine, compressor, pump, fan, blower, boiler, condenser, heat
exchanger, water heater, flow in pipes (ducts or tubes), nozzle, diffuser
..etc.
1.2.3 Isolated system: It is a system with no heat or work, or mass
transfer across the boundaries.
1.3 Property of a system: It is any macroscopic
characteristic (quantity) of a system such as:
 Pressure (P); Pa or kPa, MPa, bar, atm
 Temperature (T); K = t (
o
C ) + 273
 Specific volume (v): volume per unit mass.
 v = total volume/mass = V / m = 1/ ρ m
3
/kg
 Density (ρ) : mass per unit volume.
ρ = mass / total volume = m / V kg/m
3
13.1 Intensive properties: are those, which are independent of the size of a system (T, P, ρ).
1.3.2 Extensive properties: vary directly with the size of the system (mass, volume) (Fig. 1.5).
Intensive (specific) property = Extensive property / mass
e.g. v = V/m
1.4 State: It is the condition of a system as described by any two independent properties (P, T, v, u, ….. )
(Fig. 1.6).
NOTE: Temperature & pressure are dependent properties during phase change of boiling or
condensation. i.e. T = ƒ(p). This means that there is a known temperature at a certain pressure during
boiling or condensation.
Equation of State: Any relationship among thermodynamic properties is called an equation of state. For
example, the equation of state for ideal gas is Pv = RT .
1.5 Equilibrium: a state of balance, i.e. no driving force within the system. It happens when the properties
of the system don’t change with time and the properties are the same at any point within the system.
Equilibrium state: properties are uniform throughout the entire system.
1.5.1 Thermal equilibrium: temperature is uniform
throughout the entire system.
1.5.2 Mechanical equilibrium: pressure is uniform
throughout the entire system.
1.5.3 Phase equilibrium: phase (liquid, gas, solid) is uniform
throughout the entire system.
1.5.4 Chemical equilibrium: chemical composition is uniform
throughout the entire system.
1.5.5 Thermodynamic equilibrium: system is isolated and
properties do not change with time.
Fig 1.5: Criteria to differentiate
intensive and extensive properties.
Fig 1.6: A system at two different states

1.6 Process: It is the transformation of a system from one
state to another (Fig. 1.7). The process (12) in that figure is a
compression process since the volume decreases and the
pressure increases. State 1 is the initial state, state 2 is the
final state and the process goes from 1 to 2.

 Adiabatic process: No heat transfer process = insulated surface (Q = 0)
1.7 Cycle: a sequence of processes that returns the system to its
initial state. Final state = initial state (Fig. 1.8)

1.9 Temperature & the Zeroth Law
Although we are familiar with temperature as a measure of “hotness” or “coldness,” it is not easy to give an
exact definition of it. However, temperature is considered as a thermodynamic property that is the measure
of the energy content of a mass. When heat energy is transferred to a body, the body's energy content
increases and so does its temperature. In fact it is the difference in temperature that causes energy transfer,
called heat transfer, to flow from a hot body to a cold body. Two bodies are in thermal equilibrium when
they have reached the same temperature. If two bodies are in thermal equilibrium with a third body, they
are also in thermal equilibrium with each other. This simple fact is known as the zeroth law of
thermodynamics.

Pa = 0.1 MPa = 100 kPa

The pressure used in all calculations of state is the absolute pressure measured relative to absolute zero
pressure. However, pressures are often measured relative to atmospheric pressure, called gage or
vacuum pressures.

Chapter 2: Properties of pure substances
2.1 Pure substance: It is a substance that has a homogeneous and fixed chemical composition through out
its material (H
2O
, N
2
, air, CO
2
). Pure substance may exist at the same time in more than one phase in
equilibrium (ice in water or liquid droplets in vapor). This means that a mixture of ice and liquid water is a
pure substance and a mixture of water vapor and liquid water is a pure substance.
 Properties of ideal gas are related by: Pv = RT or P = ρRT
 Incompressible substance: is the substance that its volume does not change much with increasing
pressure. This means that its density (or specific volume) is nearly constant. i.e., v = constant or ρ =
constant.
2.2 Phase change: Substances can exist at solid, liquid or gaseous state. In other words substances can
exist at three phases or as a mixture of two phases. Substances can also be changed from one phase to
another by heating or cooling. For example, ice (solid phase) can change into water (liquid phase) by
heating and the water can change into water vapor (gaseous phase) by more heating. In steam power plants,
phase changes occur in the boiler and condenser.
Examples of pure substances:
1. Water (solid, liquid, and vapor phases)
2. Mixture of liquid water and water vapor
3. Carbon dioxide, CO
2
4. Nitrogen, N
2
5. Mixtures of gases, such as air, as long as there is no change of phase.
 Condenser: It is a device used in power plant stations to condense steam (water vapor) and hence it
changes gas phase (vapor) into liquid phase (water).
 Boiler: It is a device used in power plant stations to evaporate water and hence it changes liquid phase
(water) into gas phase (vapor).
Real substances that readily change phase from solid to liquid to gas such as water, refrigerant12, and
ammonia cannot be treated as ideal gases in general. The pressure, volume, temperature relation, or
equation of state for these substances is generally very complicated, and the thermodynamic properties are
given in table form. The properties of these substances may be illustrated by the functional relation
F(P,v,T)=0, called an equation of state.
Figure 2.1 shows three regions where a substance like water
may exist as a solid, liquid or gas (or vapor). Also this figure
shows that a substance may exist as a mixture of two phases
during phase change, solid vapor, solidliquid, and liquid
vapor.
Now consider cold water inside a cylinder with a piston of
negligible weight (to have H
2
O at atmospheric pressure)
(Figure 2.2). As thus the heating process occurs at constant
pressure (atmospheric). Boiling at this pressure occurs at 100
o
C which is called saturation temperature at this pressure. This
constant pressure heating process is illustrated in Figure 2.3.
Fig 2.1
Fig 2.2: Phase change at constant pressure
7
Process 12:
The temperature and specific volume will increase
from the compressed liquid, or subcooled liquid,
state 1, to the saturated liquid state 2. In the
compressed liquid region, the properties of the liquid
are approximately equal to the properties of the
saturated liquid state at the saturation temperature.
Process 23:
At state 2 the liquid has reached the temperature at
which it begins to boil, called the saturation
temperature, and is said to exist as a saturated liquid.
Properties at the saturated liquid state are noted by
the subscript f and v
2
= v
f
. During the phase change
both the temperature and pressure remain constant
(water it boils at 100°C when the pressure is 1 atm or
101.325 kPa). At state 3 the liquid and vapor phase
are in equilibrium and any point on the line between
states 2 and 3 has the same temperature and pressure.
Process 34:
At state 4, a saturated vapor exists and vaporization
is complete. The subscript g will always denote a
saturated vapor state. Note v
4
= v
g
. Thermodynamic
properties at the saturated liquid state and saturated
vapor state are given in the saturated temperature
table (table 1) and the saturated pressure table (table
2). These two tables contain the same information. In
the first, the saturation temperature is the
independent property, and in the second, the
saturation pressure is the independent property. The
saturation pressure is the pressure at which phase
change will occur at a given temperature. In the
saturation region the temperature and pressure are
dependent properties which mean that if one
property is known, then the other is automatically
known.
Process 45:
If the constant pressure heating is continued, the
temperature increases above the saturation
temperature, 100 °C in this example, and the volume
also increases. State 5 is called a superheated state
because T
5
is greater than the saturation temperature
for the given pressure and the vapor is not about to
condense. Thermodynamic properties for water in the
superheated region are given in the superheated
steam tables (table 3)
Consider repeating this process for other constant
pressure lines as shown in Figure 2.4.
If all of the saturated liquid states are connected, the
saturated liquid line is established as can be seen in
figures 2.5 and 2.6. If all of the saturated vapor states
are connected, the saturated vapor line is established.
These two lines intersect at the critical point and
form what is often called the “steam dome.” The
region between the saturated liquid line and the
saturated vapor line is called by these terms:
saturated liquidvapor mixture region, wet region
(i.e., a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated

Fig 2.4: Heating at different constant pressures
Fig 2.5: TV property diagram
Fig 2.6: PV property diagram

vapor), twophase region, and just the saturation region.
Notice that the trend of the temperature following a constant pressure line is to increase with increasing
volume and the trend of the pressure following a constant temperature line is to decrease with increasing
volume. The region to the left of the saturated liquid line and below the critical temperature is called the
compressed liquid region. The region to the right of the saturated vapor line and above the critical
temperature is called the superheated region.
Property Tables
In addition to the temperature, pressure, and volume data, property tables contain the data for the specific
internal energy u, the specific enthalpy h, and the specific entropy s. The enthalpy is a convenient grouping
of the internal energy, pressure, and volume and is given by:
H = U + PV and the enthalpy per unit mass is h = u + Pv
The enthalpy h is quite useful in calculating the energy of mass
streams flowing into and out of control volumes. The enthalpy has
units of energy per unit mass, kJ/kg.
Entropy (s) is an important property that measures randomness.
For instance organized people lead to lowentropy lives while
mechanical friction of a moving piston through a cylinder with
high friction generates entropy. The efficiency of any process
decreases with entropy generation and the amount of entropy
generation measures how much bad is the process.
Saturated Water Tables
Since temperature and pressure are dependent properties using the
phase change, two tables are given for the saturation region.
Temperature table (table 1) has temperature as the independent
property (first column); Pressure table (table 2) has pressure as the
independent property (first column). These two tables contain the
same information and often only one table is given.
Table (1):

For the complete Tables, the last entry is the critical point at 22.09 MPa. and 374.14

liquid value region. That is,

is called the enthalpy of vaporization (or latent heat of vaporization). It represents the
amount of energy needed to vaporize a unit of mass of saturated liquid at a given temperature or pressure. It
decreases as the temperature or pressure increases, and becomes zero at the critical point.

2.3 Some terminologies and definitions:
Saturation Temperature or Pressure:
It is the T at which a pure substance starts boiling at a given P, and this T is called Saturation T.
Likewise, at a given temperature, the pressure at boiling is called the saturation pressure Psat e.g., H
2
O at
1 atm, T
sat
=100
0
C (H
2
O at 100
0
C, P
sat
= 1 atm)
Remember : Saturation temperature depends on pressure. For example. If P = 0.5 bar, water boils at
81.35°C and if P = 10 bar, T
sat
= 179.88°C.
Saturated Liquid (Subcooled/ Compressed Liquid):
If a substance exists as liquid at the saturation T and P, it is called saturated liquid. If the T of the liquid is
lower than T
sat
for the existing P, it is either called a subcooled liquid (implying T < T
sat
for the given P) or
a compressed liquid (implying P > P
sat
for the given T). The saturated liquid is the liquid which is about to
vaporize while compressed liquid is the liquid that is not to vaporize.
Quality and Saturated LiquidVapor Mixture
Now, let’s review the constant pressure heat addition process for water shown in Figure 23. Since state 3 is
a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated vapor, how do we locate it on the Tv diagram? To establish the
location of state 3 a new parameter called the steam quality or dryness fraction x which is defined as
The quality ( x) is zero for the saturated liquid and one for the saturated vapor (0 ≤ x ≤1). The average
specific volume ( or any property) at any state in the wet region as state 3 is given in terms of the quality
( x) as follows: Consider a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated vapor. The liquid has a mass m

occupies a volume V

Superheated Water Table (Table 3):
A substance is said to be superheated if its temperature is greater
than the saturation temperature for the given pressure. State 5 in
Figure 23 is a superheated state. In the superheated water table, T
and P are the independent properties. The value of temperature to the
right of the pressure is the saturation temperature for the pressure.

Compressed Liquid Water Table
A substance is said to be a
compressed liquid when
its pressure is greater than
the saturation pressure for
the temperature. It is now
noted that state 1 in Figure
23 is called a compressed
liquid state because the saturation
pressure for the temperature T
1
is less than P
1
.
At pressures below 5 MPa for water, the data are approximately equal to the saturated liquid data at the
given temperature. We approximate intensive parameter y, that is v, u, h, and s data as:
y ≈ y
f @ T
How to Choose the Right Table
The correct table to use to find the thermodynamic properties of a real substance can always be determined
by comparing the known state properties to the properties in the saturation region. Given the temperature
or pressure and one other property from the group v, u, h, and s, the following procedure is used. For
example if the pressure and specific volume are specified, three questions are asked: For the given pressure,
You go to table 1 or 2 and check the following:
 If v < v
f
the state is subcooled or compressed liquid, then you use table 3.
 If v = v
f
the state is saturated liquid, x = 0 and you use table 1 or 2.
 If v = v
g
the state is saturated vapor (dry saturated), x = 1 and you use table 1 or 2.
 If v
f
< v < v
g
the state is wet steam and 0 < x < 1
and you have to get the exact value by using the data
from table 1 and 2 to get v
f
and v
g
then v = v
f
+ x (v
g
 v
f
). After that you use x to get h, u, s using the
relation h = h
f
+ x h
fg
, u = u
f
+ xu
fg
, s = s
f
+ x s
fg.
 If v > v
g
the state is superheated and you use table table 3.
Example 21
Find the internal energy of water at the given states for 7 MPa and plot the states on Tv, and Pv diagrams.
a. P = 7 MPa, dry saturated or saturated vapor:
Using Table 1 or 2: u = u
g
= 2580.5 kJ/kg
b. P = 7 MPa, wet saturated or saturated liquid:
Using Table 1 or 2: u = u
f
= 1257.6 kJ/kg
c. Moisture = 5%, P = 7 MPa:
let moisture be y, defined as y = m
f
/m = 0.05, then x = 1 y = 1.0 – 0.05 = 0.95, using table 1 to get u
f
and u
g ,
then: u = u
f
+ x(u

– u
f
) = 1257.6 + 0.95(2580.5 – 1257.6) = 2514.4 kJ/kg.
d. P = 7 MPa, T = 600°C, For P = 7 MPa:
Table 1 gives T
sat
= 285.9°C. Since 600°C > T
sat
for this pressure, the state is superheated. Use Table 3, u
= 3260.7 kJ/kg.
e. P = 7 MPa, T = 100
o
C:
Using Table 1, At T = 100
o
C, Psat = 0.10132 MPa. Since P > Psat, he state is compressed liquid.
approximate solution: u = uf @ T = 100 = 418.94 kJ/kg.
We do linear interpolation to get the value at 100 °C. (We will
demonstrate how to do linear interpolation with this problem even
though one could accurately estimate the answer.)
u = 418.96 kJ/kg.
7.
f. P = 7 MPa, T = 460°C:
since 460°C > T
sat
at P = 7 MPa: the state is superheated. Using
Table 3, we do linear interpolation to get u = 2997.1 kJ/kg
Using the above table, form the following ratios.

Example 22
Determine the enthalpy of 1.5 kg of water contained in a volume of 1.2 m

at 200 kPa.
Recall we need two independent, intensive properties to specify the state of a simple substance. Pressure P
is one intensive property and specific volume is another. Therefore, we calculate the specific volume.
v = volume/mass = 1.2/1.5 = 0.8 m

Example 23
Consider the closed, rigid container of water shown below. The pressure is 700 kPa, the mass of the
saturated liquid is 1.78 kg, and the mass of the saturated vapor is 0.22 kg. Heat is added to the water until
the pressure increases to 8 MPa. Find the final temperature, enthalpy, and internal energy of the water.
Does the liquid level rise or fall? Plot this process on a Pv diagram with respect to the saturation lines and
the critical point.
Let’s introduce a solution procedure that we will follow throughout the course.
System: A closed system composed of the water enclosed in the tank
Property Relation: Steam Tables
Process: Volume is constant (rigid container)
For the closed system the total mass is constant and since the process is one in which the volume is

At 8 MPa, vf = 0.001384 m3/kg, vg = 0.002352 m3/kg, but v
2
= 0.031 m3/kg; therefore, v
2
> v

and hence
the state is superheated.
Interpolating in the superheated tables at 8 MPa gives, T

= 2776 kJ/kg
Since state 2 is superheated, the liquid level falls.

The enthalpy – entropy (hs) chart:
The coordinate of an hs or Mollier chart represent the two major properties of interest in thermodynamic
analysis of open systems (boilers, turbines, condensers, pumps). The vertical distance between two states
on this diagram is a measure of Δ h and the horizontal distance measures Δ s (the degree of irreversibility
for an adiabatic process). It can also be used to present data and getting properties with reasonable accuracy
especially in the superheated vapor region. By tracing the lines of different coloure, you can trace the lines
(curves) of steam quality (x) pressure (p), temperature (t,°C), specific volume (dm/kg). Note
1. You need to multiply the v data you get from the chart by 10

Equations of State
The relationship among the state variables, temperature, pressure, and specific volume is called the
equation of state. We now consider the equation of state for the vapor or gaseous phase of simple
compressible substances.
Ideal Gas
Based on our experience in chemistry and physics we recall that the combination of Boyle’s and Charles’
laws for gases at low pressure result in the equation of state for the ideal gas as
where R is the constant of proportionality and is called the gas constant and takes on a different value for
each gas. If a gas obeys this relation, it is called an ideal gas. We often write this equation as
or or
Here P = absolute pressure in MPa, or kPa
v = specific volume in m
3
/kg
T = absolute temperature in K
R
u
= universal gas constant = 8.314 kJ/(kmol K)
The gas constant for ideal gases (R) is related to the universal gas constant R
u
through:
Where M is the molecular weight, The mass, m, is related to the number of moles (N) by m = NM.
M
air
= 29, M
o2
= 32, M
N2
= 28, M
co
= 28, M
co2
= 44, M
H2
= 2
Example 25
Determine the particular gas constant for air and hydrogen.
The ideal gas equation of state is used when (1) the pressure is small compared to the critical pressure or
(2) when the temperature is twice the critical temperature and the pressure is less than 10 times the critical
pressure. The critical point is that state where there is an instantaneous change from the liquid phase to the
vapor phase for a substance. Critical point data are given in Tables.
Compressibility Factor
To understand the above criteria and to determine how much the ideal gas equation of state deviates from
the actual gas behavior, we introduce the compressibility factor Z as follows.
Pv = Z R
u
T or Z =Pv/R
u
T
For an ideal gas Z = 1, and the
deviation of Z from unity measures
the deviation of the actual PVT
relation from the ideal gas equation
of state. The compressibility factor is
expressed as a function of the
reduced pressure and the reduced
temperature. The Z factor is
approximately the same for all gases
at the same reduced temperature and
reduced pressure, which are defined
as T
r
= T/T
cr
and P
r
= P/P
r
where Pcr and Tcr are the critical
pressure and temperature,
respectively. The critical constant
data for various substances are given
in Tables.

water (superheated steam) to be
an ideal gas.
We see that the region for
which water behaves as an
ideal gas is in the superheated
region and depends on both T
and P. We must be cautioned
that in this course, when water is
the working fluid, the ideal gas
assumption may not be used to
solve problems. We must use
the real gas relations, i.e., the
property tables.

The First Law of Thermodynamics
3.1 Energy conservation principle (first law of thermodynamics):
Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only change forms
3.2 Energy conservation on a system undergoing a cycle: during any cycle a system
undergoes, the cyclic integral of the heat is proportional to the cyclic integral of the work.
Consider the Following cycle:
For any cycle, the system returns back to its initial state and hence there is no energy
stored for the cycle.
Thus the first law for a cycle states that the net heat transfer to the system equals the net
work done by the system similar to Carnot cycle.

3.6 Types of work:
There are five types of work: Moving boundary work, mechanical work, shaft
work, spring work, and electrical work.
(1) Moving Boundary work (PdVwork ): Similar to the moving boundary of a
fluid enclosed in a cylinderpiston arrangement. When the piston moves, it causes
a moving boundary work.
Some Typical Processes
Constant volume:
If the volume is held constant, dV = 0, and the
boundary work equation becomes

Constant temperature, ideal gas
If the temperature of an ideal gas system is held constant, then the equation of state provides the pressure
volume relation, then, the boundary work is:
The polytropic process
The polytropic process is one in which the pressurevolume relation is given as PV
n
= constant
The exponent n (polytropic index) may have any value from minus infinity to plus infinity depending on
the process. Some of the more common values are given below.
Process Exponent n
For constant pressure, n = 0
For constant volume, n = ∞
For isothermal & ideal gas, n = 1
For adiabatic & ideal gas, n = k = C
P
/C
V
Here, k is the ratio of the specific heat at constant pressure C
P
to specific heat at constant volume C
V
. The
specific heats will be discussed later. The boundary work done during the polytropic process is found by
substituting the pressurevolume relation into the boundary work equation.
The result is:
For an ideal gas undergoing a polytropic process, the boundary work is
Notice that the results we obtained for an ideal gas undergoing a polytropic process when n = 1 are
identical to those for an ideal gas undergoing the isothermal process.
(2) Mechanical work: This work is similar to the work required to move a block
of mass m kg by pulling this block by excreting a force F on it that moves it a
distance.
(3) Shaft work: This is similar to the work done by the crankshaft of an
automobile.

A force acting through arm r generates a torque τ (Fig. 3.4). The work done during n
revolution is given by
Example 1:
Determine the power transmitted through the shaft of a car when the torque applied is
200 N.m and the shaft rotates at a rate of 400 revolutions per minute (rpm).
Solution: The angular velocity (ω) =

= (2π)(400/60) = 418.5 1/s
Power = τ ω = 418.5* 200
= 83.7 kw (or 112.2 hp)
(4) Spring work:
When a force is applied on a spring, the length of the spring changes and the work done
is given by δw
spring
= F dx
For a linear elastic spring, F = kx, where k is called spring constant and has the unit N/m
(5)Electric work: This is similar to the work used to heat air or water by an
electrical resistance produced by passing an electric current (I) over a time period
because of an electric potential or volt (ε)

Example 2:

placed in the tank is connected to a 220volt source, and an electric current of 5 A flows
through the resistant heater for 20 min. Find the work done on the system.
3.7 Heat: is the energy transferred (crossed) the boundaries due to temperature
difference (not associated with mass and not stored in the system)
Sign convention:
If heat is transferred to the system :then Q is +ve as in the case of boilers, solar heaters,
combustion chambers, tea pots & cooking pans.
If heat is transferred to the system (heat is last form the system): then Q is ve such as
condensers, human body & hot Pizza.

This means that we get higher pressure in the case of isentropic compression because in
the case of nonadiabatic process, the pressure is reduced due to the associated heat
loss.

ْ ◌C and then cooled at constant volume to 4 bar. Calculate the magnitudes and senses of
the heat and work transfers in each of these processes.
Solution:
From steam tables at 10 bar, T

But T

Control Volume (Open System) Energy Analysis
4.1 Steady state open system:
This section covers the application of the first low of thermodynamics on open systems or
control volumes such as the flow in pipes, ducts, compressors, pumps, nozzles diffusers;
heat exchangers, condensers, combustion chambers, heaters, coolers, pumps, ………etc.
 Mass crosses the boundary of these systems and heat and work may be exchanged
across the control volume of these systems. The first law of thermodynamics controls
the transformation of the different energies over these systems.
 Steady state means: temperature and all properties are uniform through out the system
and do not change over the time at state (1) and state (2). However the change occurs
during process 1 2 only i.e d /dt = 0
 Also masses may get into or out of the system but there is no mass change of the system
with time i.e there is a mass conservation. Which means that the mass of the system
does not increase or decrease during the process.

4.4 Engineering Applications Involving SteadyState Open Systems:
Turbines: superheated steam is used in steam turbines to produce work. On the other
hand air at high pressure and temperature (high enthalpy) is used in gas turbine to
produce work. In general, heat losses can be neglected (Q = 0 ) in both steam or as gas
turbines. Moreover, expansion in turbines may be assumed isentropic.
Compressors: They are used to increase the pressure of gases such as air. Because of
compression, gas temperature increases and the compressor loose heat (Q is – ve).
Compressors are driven by electric motors and hence the compressor work is negative.
Reversible Steadyflow Work:
When neglecting the changes in kinetic and potential energies, the work done for steady
flow devices undergoing an internally reversible process can be written as:
w
rev
=  ∫ vdp kJ/kg
The difference between v dp and p dv should be clear. Pdv is associated with reversible
boundary work in closed systems while vdp is the reversible work for steady flow open
systems when neglecting changes in kinetic and potential energles.
The reversible work done for a polytropic process (PV

Some SteadyFlow Engineering Devices
Below are some engineering devices that operate essentially as steadystate, steadyflow control volumes.
Pumps: It is similar to
compressors, except it
compresses liquids such as
water or oil.
Nozzles: The area of a nozzle
decreases in the flow
direction to increase the fluid
velocity (kinetic energy) and
as thus the pressure or
enthalpy decreases.
Diffusers: It is the opposite
of a nozzle. The area increases in the flow direction and as thus, the pressure increases
and the velocity decreases.
Boilers: Fuels are burned in boilers to evaporate water and produce steam or
superheated steam (Q is negative).
Condensers: Condensers are used to condense steam.
Throttling valve: It is a device used to make a sudden drop in pressure. The enthalpy
before and after the throttling valve is the same.
Example 5:
Air compressor is used to compress 0.03 kg/s atmospheric air from 1 bar and 25
º
C to 10
bar. If the compression process is polytrophic and follows the relation PV
1.3
= constant,
calculate the power required to drive the compressor and the heat losses. Consider the
pipe diameter at the inlet is 5 cm and that at the exit is 2 cm.
Solution:
To find the exit temperature T, use the relation:
(T

Then,
w =  nR(T

– T

)/(n1)
w =  0.287 × 1.3 [506.97 – 298]/(1.31)
w = 259.89 kJ / kg
power = m w = 0.03 × (259.89)

To calculate the heat losses, apply the first law of thermodynamics for steady flow open
system:

In this equation the potential energy is neglected but the law of kinetic energy should be
calculated because the inlet and exit diameters are given. So,

= 0.03 × 0.287 × 506.97 / [1000 / 3.14(0.02)

= 13.89 m /s
The difference between V
1
and V
2
is small and thus the change in kinetic energy can be neglected. This
can be calculated as:
Kinetic energy = [(V

)
2
– (V
1
)
2
] / 2 (m
2
/ S
2
) = 11.148 J/kg = 0.0112 kJ / kg
This is too small relative to the work ( w = 259.89 kJ/kg) and can be neglected as mentioned above.
Thus, the first law on this steady state open system can written as:
Q°  W° = m [(h
2
– h
1
) + (V
2
2
– V
2
1
) / 2 + g (z
2

And since it is an air which can be assumed as an ideal gas and in this case:
h

– h
1
= C
p
( T

) where C
p
= 1.0035 kJ/kg K
Q°  (7.797) = 0.03 [C
P
(T

 T

) + 0 +0]
= 0.03 × 1.0035 (506.97 – 298) = 6.29
Q° = 6.29 – 7.797 = 1.51 kW
The negative sign means that the heat will be transferred (lost) from the system.
Example 6:
Air at 10 °C and 80 kPa enters the diffuser of a jet engine steadily with a velocity of 200 m/s. The inlet
area of the diffuser is 0.4 m
2
. The air leaves the diffuser with a velocity that is very small compared
with the inlet velocity. Determine (a) the mass flow rate of the air and (b) the temperature of the air
leaving the diffuser.
Solution:
(a) To determine the mass flow rate, we need to find the specific volume of the air first
which is determined from the idealgas equation at the inlet condition:

(b) diffuser normally involves no shaft or electrical work (w = 0), negligible heat transfer (q
= 0), and a small (if any) elevation change between the inlet and the exit (Δpe = 0 ), then
the first law of thermodynamics or the conservation of energy relation on a unitmass

The exit velocity of a diffuser is usually small compared to the inlet velocity (V

thus the kinetic energy at the exit can be neglected.

Example 7:
Air at 100 kPa and 280 K is compressed steadily to 600 kPa and 400 K. The mass flow
rate of the air is 0.02 kg/s, and a heat loss of 16 kJ/kg occurs during the process.
Assuming the changes in kinetic and potential energies are negligible, determine the
necessary power input to the compressor.
Solution:
It is stated that Δke ≡ 0 and Δ pe ≡ 0. then the conservation of energy equation for this
singlestream steadyflow open system (first law of thermodynamics) reduces to
q  w = Δh + Δke + Δpe
= h

The enthalpy of an ideal gas can be calculated from Δh =C

Substituting yields
 16 – w = 1.0035 (400 – 280)
w =  136.42 kJ/kg
This is the work done on the air per unit mass. The power input to the compressor is
determined by multiplying this value by the mass flow rate:
W = m w = (0.02) ( 136.42) = 2.73 kw
Example 8:
The electric heating systems used in many houses consist of a simple duct with resistance
wires. Air flows over resistance wires. Consider a 15kw electric heating system. Air
enters the heating section at 100 kPa and 17
º
C with a volume flow rate of 150 m
3
/min. If
heat is lost from the air in the duct to the surroundings at a rate if 200 W, determine the
exit temperature of air.
Solution:
The conservation of energy equation for this singlestream steadyflow open system
(noticing that there are no change in kinetic and potential energies) simplifies to
Q

Energy conservation says that Burning papers
can change completely to work (Fig. 4.1)
• Energy has a quality and a quantity.
• A process can change in a certain
direction.
• The processes in Figs. (4.1) can not be
done although the first law is satisfied.
The above two processes satisfy the 1
st
law but do not satisfy 2
nd
law and therefore a process can’t take
place unless it satisfies both laws.
4.1 Definitions:
Thermal energy reservoirs = heat reservoirs = reservoirs (Fig. 4.2)
A hypothetical system with a relatively large thermal energy capacity (mass × specific heat × temp) that
can supply or absorb finite amounts of energy or heat without any change in system temperature.
Reservoirs are classified as sources or sinks.
Examples: (Atmosphere, river, ocean……etc )
Source = a reservoir that supplies energy in the form of heat.
Sink = a reservoir that absorbs energy in the form of heat.
Heat engines (Fig. 4.3) are characterized by the following:
1 They receive heat from a hightemperature source (solar energy, oil furnace, nuclear reactor, etc.)
2 They convert part of this heat to work (usually to a rotating shaft).
3 They reject the remaining waste heat to a low – temperatures sink (the atmosphere, rivers, etc.).
4 They operate on a cycle.

The objective of Refrigerator is to maintain the refrigerated space (at T

heat from it. The objective of a heat pump is to maintain a heated space at a high temperature by adding
(rejecting) heat to it.

4.5 Equivalence of the two statements
1The Kelvin – Planck and the Clausius statements are equivalent in their consequences, and either
statement can be used as the expression of the second law of thermodynamics. Both statements are
negative because they use it is impossible.
2Any device that violates the Kelvin – Planck statement also violates the Clausius statement, and vice
versa.
4.6 Prove of the second observation:
In order to prove that both statements are equivalent: If a device violates one statement, it must
violate the other statement (if one goes false the other automatically goes false).
Prove (Fig. 4.5)
 Assume a device that violates Clausius statement (it has Q
L
=
Q
H
).
 Add a heat engine device that has the same Q
L
.
 The resultant device produced by adding the tow devces together violates KelvinPlank
statement.
From the above analysis, violation of Clausius statement implies (leads to) the violation of Kelvin
Planck statement and therefore both statements are equivalent.

Problems on second law
1. State the expressions of KelvinPlank and Clausius for the second law and then prove that they are
equivalent.
2. What are the two statements known as the Carnot principles?
3. Heat is transferred to a heat engine from a furnace at a rate of 800 MW. If the rate of waste heat rejection
to nearby river is 50 MW, determine the net power output and the thermal efficiency for this heat engine.
(Answer: 30 MW, 0.375)
4. A heat pump is used to meet the heating requirements of a house and maintain it at 20oC. On a day when
the outdoor air temperature drops to 2oC, the house is estimated to lose heat at a rate of 80,000 kJ/h. If
the heat pump under these conditions has a COP of 2.5, determine (a) the power consumed by the heat
pump and (b) the rate at which heat is extracted from the cold outdoor air.
(Answer: 8.9 MW, 48000 kJ/h)
5. A Carnot heat engine receives 500 kJ of heat per cycle from a hightemperature source at 652oC and
rejects heat to a lowtemperature sink at 30oC. Determine (a) the thermal efficiency of this Carnot engine
and (b) the amount of heat rejected to the sink per cycle. (Answer: 0.672, 163.8 kJ)
6. A heat pump is to be used to heat a house during the winter. The house is to be maintained at 21oC at all
times. The house is estimated to be losing heat at a rate of 135,000 kJ/h when the outside temperature
drops to 5oC. Determine the minimum power required to drive this heat pump unit. (Answer: 3.32 kW)
7. Consider two Carnot heat engines operating in series. The first engine receives heat from a reservoir at 1000
K and rejects the waste heat to another reservoir at temperature T. The second engine receives the energy
rejected by the first one, converts some of it to work, and rejects the rest to a reservoir at 300 K. If the
thermal efficiencies of both engines are the same, determine the temperature T. (Answer: 547.7 K)
8. A Carnot heat engine receives heat from a reservoir at 900oC at a rate of 700 kJ/min and rejects the waste
heat to the ambient air at 27oC. The entire work output of the heat engine is used to drive a refrigerator
that removes heat from the refrigerated space at 5oC and transfers it to the same ambient air at 27oC.
Determine (a) the maximum rate of heat removal from the refrigerated space and (b) the total rate of heat
rejection to the ambient air. (Answer: (a)4359 kJ/min)
9. A heat engine operates between two reservoirs at 727oC and 17oC. Onehalf of the work output of the
heat engine is used to drive a Carnot heat pump which removes heat from the cold surroundings at 2oC
and transfers it to a house maintained at 22oC. If the house is losing heat at a rate of 80,000 kJ/h,
determine the minimum rate of heat supply to the heat engine required to keep the house at 22oC.
10. A Carnot cycle receives heat from a constanttemperature reservoir at 700 k and rejects heat to 5 kg of
water which is initially saturated liquid at 100 kPa. As the engine operates, the water is heated at constant
pressure until its temperature reaches 150oC. Calculate the work output of the Carnot engine.

Chapter 5: Entropy
Clausius Inequality:
This inequality is used to check that any cycle (engine or refrigerator) violates the second law of
thermodynamic or not.
• Consider a reversible power cycle (heat engines shown in Fig 5.1):
• If the power cycle (heat engine) is irreversible and for the same Q
H
:
• Calusius Inequality: For all Cycles (Power/Ref/AC/H.P.)
That is, the cyclic integral of ∆Q/T is always less than or equal to zero this inequality is valid for all cycles,
reversible or irreversible. The symbol
∫
means that the integration is done over the entire cycle
Example 51
A heat engine receives 600 KJ heat from a hightemperature source at 1000 K during a cycle. It converts
150 KJ of this heat to net work and rejects the remaining 450 KJ to a law of thermodynamics on the basis
of (a) the Clausius inequality and (b) the Carnot principle.
Solution
(a) One way of the determining whether this cycle violates the second law is to check if it violates the
Clausius inequality. A cycle that violates the Clausius inequality also violates the second law.
By assuming that the temperature at location where heat is crossing the boundaries of the heat engine
is equal to the temperature of the reservoirs, the cyclic integral of δ Q/T for the heatengine cycle
under consideration is determined to be

Since the cyclic satisfied the Clausius inequality and thus the second law of thermodynamics.
(b) Another way of determining whether this heat engine violates the second law is to check if the Carnot
principle is satisfied. This is done by comparing the thermal efficiency of this heat engine to the
thermal efficiency of a reversible heat engine, such as the Carnot engine, operating between the same
temperature limits:

Consider a closed system undergoing a reversible cyclic process (1A2B1)
This means that the integration on the process or path A equals the integration on path B.
A special case is the isothermal heat transfer process
• The values of the entropy (in kJ/kg.k) of pure substances such as steam, R12……etc are
obtained form tables. For ideal gases, Δs are obtained form some relation that are given
in the next section.
• Form the above relations, we can write:
δQ = T ds)
rev.
or ΔQ = ∫Tds)
rev
this means that the heat transfer during a process is represented by the area under the
process curve on a TS diagram
38
It has been shown that, for a reversible process
For an irreversible process:
The Entropy Increase Principle:
The total energy change Δs

or entropy generation S
gen
and the entropy increase principle for any process
is expressed as
S

surr
≥ 0
This principle is applicable to both closed (control mass) and open (control volume) system. It states that
the total entropy change associated with a process must be positive or zero. The equality holds for
reversible processes and the inequality for irreversible ones.
Sine no actual process is truly reversible, we can conclude that the net entropy change for any process that
takes place is positive, and therefore the entropy of the universe this means that the disorder or “mixedup
ness” in the universe increases with the time. The entropy change of a system or its surroundings can be
negative during a process, but their sum cannot. The entropy increase principle can be summarized as
follows:

Thus the entropy of a fluid will increase as it flows through an adiabatic steadyflow device as a result of

39
Causes of entropy change:
The entropy of system changes because of
 Heat transfer : if the heat is transferred from the system the entropy decreases and vise versa.
 Irreversibility:
• such as friction, fast expansion or compression. The entropy of a system can not decrease
during an adiabatic process. If a process involves no heat transfer (adiabatic) and no
irreversibility within the system (internally reversible), the entropy of a system must remain
constant during that process. Such a process is called an internally reversible adiabatic or
isentropic process.
• The steadyflow devices deliver the highest work (such as turbines ) and consumes the
minimum work (such as compressors and pumps ) when the process is reversible and
adiabatic.
Remarks an entropy:
 Entropy can be viewed as a measure of molecular disorder, or molecular randomness. The concept
of entropy as a measure of disorganized energy is useful in the calculation of the performance of
engineering systems. The system that has high irreversibility’s gets greater entropy generation and
becomes less efficient or becomes for away from the ideal system.
 A process can occur in a certain direction only. This direction must give Δs
total
≥ 0. A process that
violates this principle is impossible and cannot happen in nature.
Entropy change of pure substances:
For a pure substance such as steam & refrigerant – 12 the entropy values are obtained from tables and the
entropy change during a process is simply the difference between the entropy values at the final and initial
states:
ΔS = m (S

43
Gas Power Cycles
Our study of gas power cycles will involve the study of those heat engines in which the working fluid
remains in the gaseous state throughout the cycle. We often study the ideal cycle in which internal
irreversibilities and complexities (the actual intake of air and fuel, the actual combustion process, and the
exhaust of products of combustion among others) are removed.
We will be concerned with how the major parameters of the cycle affect
the performance of heat engines. The performance is often measured in
terms of the cycle efficiency.
AirStandard Assumptions
In our study of gas power cycles, we assume that the working fluid is air,
and the air undergoes a thermodynamic cycle even though the working
fluid in the actual power system does not undergo a cycle.
To simplify the analysis, we approximate the cycles with the following
assumptions:
• The air continuously circulates in a closed loop and always behaves as an ideal gas.
• All the processes that make up the cycle are internally reversible.
• The combustion process is replaced by a heataddition process from an external source.
• A heat rejection process that restores the working fluid to its initial state replaces the exhaust
process.
• The coldairstandard assumptions apply when the working fluid is air and has constant specific
heat evaluated at room temperature (25oC or 77oF).
Terminology for Reciprocating Devices
The following is some terminology we need to understand for reciprocating engines—typically piston
cylinder devices. Let’s look at the following figures for the definitions of top dead center (TDC), bottom
dead center (BDC), stroke, bore, intake valve, exhaust valve, clearance volume, displacement volume,
compression ratio, and mean effective pressure.
The compression ratio r of an engine is the ratio of the maximum volume to the minimum volume formed
in the cylinder.
The mean effective pressure (MEP) is a fictitious pressure that, if it operated on the piston during the entire
power stroke, would produce the same mount of net work as that produced during the actual cycle.
44
Otto Cycle: The Ideal Cycle for Spark
Ignition Engines
Consider the automotive sparkignition power
cycle with the following processes:
 Intake stroke
 Compression stroke
 Power (expansion) stroke
 Exhaust stroke
Often the ignition and combustion process
begins before the completion of the compression
stroke. The number of crank angle degrees
before the piston reaches TDC on the number
one piston at which the spark occurs is called the
engine timing. What are the compression ratio
and timing of your engine in your car, truck, or
motorcycle?
The airstandard Otto cycle is the ideal cycle that approximates the spark ignition combustion engine
with the following processes:
12 Isentropic compression
23 Constant volume heat addition
34 Isentropic expansion
41 Constant volume heat rejection
Thermal Efficiency of the Otto cycle:
Apply first law closed system to process 23, V = constant.
45
Thus, for constant specific heats,
Apply first law closed system to process 41, V = constant.
Thus, for constant specific heats,
The thermal efficiency becomes
Recall processes 12 and 34 are isentropic, so
Since V3 = V2 and V4 = V1, we see that
Is this the same as the Carnot cycle efficiency?
Since process 12 is isentropic,
where the compression ratio is r = V1/V2 and
46
We see that increasing the compression ratio increases the
thermal efficiency. However, there is a limit on r depending
upon the fuel. Fuels under high temperature resulting from
high compression ratios will prematurely ignite, causing
knock.
Example 81
An Otto cycle having a compression ratio of 9:1 uses air as the
working fluid. Initially P1 = 95 kPa, T1 = 17oC, and V1 = 3.8
liters. During the heat addition process, 7.5 kJ of heat are
added. Determine all T's, P's, th, the back work ratio, and the
mean effective pressure.
Process Diagrams: Review the Pv and Ts diagrams given
above for the Otto cycle. Assume constant specific heats with C v = 0.718 kJ/kg ⊕K, k = 1.4. (Use the 300
K data from Table A2)
Process 12 is isentropic; therefore, recalling that r = V1/V2 = 9,
The first law closed system for process 23 was shown to reduce to (your homework solutions must be
complete; that is, develop your equations from the application of the first law for each process as we did in
obtaining the Otto cycle efficiency equation)
47
Then,
Using the combined gas law
Process 34 is isentropic; therefore,
Process 41 is constant volume. So the first law for the closed system gives, on a mass basis,
For the cycle, u = 0, and the first law gives
48
The thermal efficiency is
The mean effective pressure is
The back work ratio is (can you show that this is true?)

Now to find Qin and Qout.
Apply the first law closed system to process 23, P = constant.

Thus, for constant specific heats

where rc is called the cutoff ratio, defined as V3 /V2, and is a measure of the duration of the heat addition at

Brayton Cycle
The Brayton cycle is the airstandard ideal cycle approximation for the gasturbine
engine. This cycle differs from the Otto and Diesel cycles in that the processes making the cycle occur in
open systems or control volumes.
Therefore, an open system, steadyflow analysis is used to determine the heat transfer and work for the
cycle.
We assume the working fluid is air and the specific heats are constant and
will consider both open and closed gasturbine cycles.

Extra Assignment
Evaluate the Brayton cycle efficiency by determining the
net work directly from the turbine work and the
compressor work. Compare your result with the above
expression. Note that this approach does not require the
closed cycle assumption.
Example 82
The ideal airstandard Brayton cycle operates with air
entering the compressor at 95 kPa, 22oC. The pressure
ratio r p is 6:1 and the air leaves the heat addition process
at 1100 K. Determine the compressor work and the
turbine work per unit mass flow, the cycle efficiency, the
back work ratio, and compare the compressor exit temperature to the turbine exit temperature. Assume
constant properties.
Apply the conservation of energy for steadyflow and neglect changes in kinetic and potential energies to
process 12 for the compressor. Note that the compressor is isentropic.
The conservation of mass gives
For constant specific heats, the compressor work per unit mass flow is
Since the compressor is isentropic
55
The conservation of energy for the turbine, process 34, yields for constant specific heats (let’s take a
minute for you to get the following result)
Since process 34 is isentropic
56
We have already shown the heat supplied to the cycle per unit mass flow in
process 23 is
The cycle efficiency becomes
The back work ratio is defined as
Note that T4 = 659.1 K > T2 = 492.5 K, or the turbine outlet temperature is greater than the compressor exit

Note that the net work is zero when
For fixed T3 and T1, the pressure ratio that makes the work a maximum is
obtained from:
This is easier to do if we let X = r p
(k1)/k

and fixed T3 and T1 is
For the ideal Brayton cycle, show that the following results are true.
When rp = rp, max work, T4 = T2
When rp < rp, max work, T4 > T2
When rp > rp, max work, T4 < T2
Regenerative Brayton Cycle
For the Brayton cycle, the turbine exhaust temperature is greater than the
compressor exit temperature. Therefore, a heat exchanger can be placed
between the hot gases leaving the turbine and the cooler gases leaving the
compressor. This heat exchanger is called a regenerator or recuperator. The
sketch of the regenerative Brayton cycle is shown below.
58
We define the regenerator effectiveness ∑regen as the ratio of the heat transferred to the compressor gases
in the regenerator to the maximum possible heat transfer to the compressor gases.
For ideal gases using the coldairstandard assumption with constant specific heats, the regenerator
effectiveness becomes
Using the closed cycle analysis and treating the heat addition and heat rejection as steadyflow processes,
the regenerative cycle thermal efficiency is
Notice that the heat transfer occurring within the regenerator is not included in the efficiency calculation
because this energy is not a heat transfer across the cycle boundary.
Assuming an ideal regenerator ∑regen = 1 and constant specific heats, the thermal efficiency becomes
(take the time to show this on your own)
59
When does the efficiency of the airstandard Brayton cycle equal the efficiency of the airstandard
regenerative Brayton cycle? If we set th, Brayton = th, regen then
Recall that this is the pressure ratio that maximizes the net work for the simple Brayton cycle and makes T4
= T2. What happens if the regenerative Brayton cycle operates at a pressure ratio larger than this value?
For fixed T3 and T1, pressure ratios greater than this value cause T4 to be less than T2, and the regenerator
is not effective.
What happens to the net work when a regenerator is added?
What happens to the heat supplied when a regenerator is added?
The following shows a plot of the regenerative Brayton cycle efficiency as a function of the pressure ratio
and minimum to maximum temperature ratio, T1/T3.
Example 83: Regenerative Brayton Cycle

800 kPa. The regenerator has an effectiveness of 65 percent, and the air enters the turbine at 1200 K. For a
compressor efficiency of 75 percent and a turbine efficiency of 86 percent, determine
(a) The heat transfer in the regenerator.

Other Ways to Improve Brayton Cycle Performance
Intercooling and reheating are two important ways to improve the performance of the Brayton cycle with
regeneration.
Intercooling
When using multistage compression, cooling the working fluid between the stages will reduce the amount
of compressor work required. The compressor work is reduced because cooling the working fluid reduces
the average specific volume of the fluid and thus reduces the amount of work on the fluid to achieve the
given pressure rise.
To determine the intermediate pressure at which intercooling should take place to minimize the compressor
work, we follow the standard approach.
For the adiabatic, steadyflow compression process, the work input to the compressor per unit mass is
64
Can you obtain this relation another way? Hint: apply the first law to processes 14.
For twostage compression, let’s assume that intercooling takes place at constant pressure and the gases can
be cooled to the inlet temperature for the compressor, such that P3 = P2 and T3 = T1.
The total work supplied to the compressor becomes
]
To find the unknown pressure P2 that gives the minimum work input for fixed compressor inlet conditions
T1, P1, and exit pressure P4, we get
or, the pressure ratios across the two compressors are equal.
Intercooling is almost always used with regeneration. During intercooling the compressor exit temperature
is reduced; therefore, more heat must be supplied in the heat addition process. Regeneration can make up
part of the required heat transfer.
65
To supply only compressed air, using intercooling requires less work input. The next time you go to a home
supply store where air compressors are sold, check the larger air compressors to see if intercooling is used.
For the larger air compressors, the compressors are made of two pistoncylinder chambers.
The intercooling heat exchanger may be only a pipe with a few attached fins that connects the large
pistoncylinder chamber with the smaller pistoncylinder chamber.
Extra Assignment
Obtain the expression for the compressor total work by applying conservation of energy directly to the low
and highpressure compressors.
Reheating
When using multistage expansion through two or more turbines, reheating between stages will increase the
net work done (it also increases the required heat input). The regenerative Brayton cycle with reheating is
shown above.
The optimum intermediate pressure for reheating is the one that maximizes the turbine work. Following the
development given above for intercooling and assuming reheating to the highpressure turbine inlet
temperature in a constant pressure steadyflow process, we can show the optimum reheat pressure to be
or the pressure ratios across the two turbines are equal.
Vapor and Combined Power Cycles
We consider power cycles where the working fluid undergoes a phase change. The best example of this
cycle is the steam power cycle where water (steam) is the working fluid. The heat engine may be composed
of the following components.
Steam Power Cycle
The working fluid, steam (water), undergoes a thermodynamic cycle from 12341. The cycle is shown on
the following Ts diagram.
Carnot Vapor Cycle Using Steam
The thermal efficiency of this cycle is
given as
66
Note the effect of TH and TL on th, Carnot. : The larger the TH the larger the th, Carnot and the smaller
the TL the larger the th, Carnot
To increase the thermal efficiency in any power cycle, we try to increase the maximum temperature at
which heat is added.
Reasons why the Carnot cycle is not used:
1− Pumping process 12 requires the pumping of a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated vapor at state 1
and the delivery of a saturated liquid at state 2.
2− To superheat the steam to take advantage of a higher temperature, elaborate controls are required to
keep TH constant while the steam expands and does work.
To resolve the difficulties associated with the Carnot cycle, the Rankine cycle was devised.
Rankine Cycle
The simple Rankine cycle has the same component layout as the Carnot cycle shown above. The simple
Rankine cycle continues the condensation process 41 until the saturated liquid line is reached.
Ideal Rankine Cycle Processes
Process Description
12 Isentropic compression in pump
23 Constant pressure heat addition in boiler
34 Isentropic expansion in turbine
41 Constant pressure heat rejection in condenser
The Ts diagram for the Rankine cycle is given below.
Locate the processes
for heat transfer and work on the diagram.
Example 91
Compute the thermal efficiency of an ideal Rankine cycle
for which steam leaves the boiler as superheated vapor at 6
MPa, 350oC, and is condensed at 10 kPa.
We use the power system and Ts diagram shown above.
P2 = P3 = 6 MPa = 6000 kPa
T3 = 350oC
P1 = P4 = 10 kPa
Pump
The pump work is obtained from the conservation of mass and energy for steadyflow but neglecting
potential and kinetic energy changes and assuming the pump is adiabatic and reversible.
Since the pumping process involves an incompressible liquid, state 2 is in the compressed liquid region, we
use a second method to find the pump work or the h across the pump.
Recall the property relation:
Since the ideal pumping process 12 is isentropic, ds = 0.
67
The incompressible liquid assumption allows
The pump work is calculated from
Using the steam tables
Now, h2 is found from
Boiler
To find the heat supplied in the boiler, we apply the steadyflow conservation of mass and energy to the
boiler. If we neglect the potential and kinetic energies, and note that no work is done on the steam in the
boiler, then
We find the properties at state 3 from the superheated tables as
68
The heat transfer per unit mass is
Turbine
The turbine work is obtained from the application of the conservation of mass and energy for steady flow.
We assume the process is adiabatic and reversible and neglect changes in kinetic and potential energies.
We find the properties at state 4 from the steam tables by noting s4 = s3 and asking three questions.
The turbine work per unit mass is
69
The net work done by the cycle is
The thermal efficiency is
Ways to improve the simple Rankine cycle efficiency:
Superheat the vapor
Average temperature is higher during heat addition.
Moisture is reduced at turbine exit (we want x4 in the above example >
85 percent).
Increase boiler pressure (for fixed maximum temperature)
Availability of steam is higher at higher pressures.
Moisture is increased at turbine exit.
Lower condenser pressure
Less energy is lost to surroundings.
Moisture is increased at turbine exit.
Extra Assignment
For the above example, find the heat rejected by the cycle and evaluate the thermal efficiency from
70
Reheat Cycle
As the boiler pressure is increased in the simple Rankine cycle, not only does the thermal efficiency
increase, but also the turbine exit moisture increases. The reheat cycle allows the use of higher boiler
pressures and provides a means to keep the turbine exit moisture (x > 0.85 to 0.90) at an acceptable level.
The thermal efficiency is given by
Example 92
Compare the thermal efficiency and turbineexit quality at the condenser pressure for a simple Rankine
cycle and the reheat cycle when the boiler pressure is 4 MPa, the boiler exit temperature is 400oC, and the
condenser pressure is 10 kPa. The reheat takes place at 0.4 MPa and the steam leaves the reheater at 400oC.
71
Regenerative Cycle
To improve the cycle thermal efficiency, the average temperature at which heat is added must be increased.
One way to do this is to allow the steam leaving the boiler to expand the steam in the turbine to an
intermediate pressure. A portion of the steam is extracted from the turbine and sent to a regenerative
heater to preheat the condensate before entering the boiler. This approach increases the average temperature
at which heat is added in the boiler. However, this reduces the mass of steam expanding in the lower
pressure stages of the turbine, and, thus, the total work done by the turbine. The work that is done is done
more efficiently.
The preheating of the condensate is done in a combination of open and closed heaters. In the open
feedwater heater, the extracted steam and the condensate are physically mixed. In the closed feedwater
heater, the extracted steam and the condensate are not mixed.

72
Consider the regenerative cycle with the open feedwater heater.
To find the fraction of mass to be extracted from the turbine, apply the first law to the feedwater heater and
assume, in the ideal case, that the water leaves the feedwater heater as a saturated liquid. (In the case of the
closed feedwater heater, the feedwater leaves the heater at a temperature equal to the saturation temperature
at the extraction pressure.)
Conservation of mass for the open feedwater heater:
Let y m m = ! / ! 6 5 be the fraction of mass extracted from the turbine for the feedwater heater.
Conservation of energy for the open feedwater heater:
Example 93
An ideal regenerative steam power cycle operates so that steam enters the turbine at 3 MPa, 500oC, and
exhausts at 10 kPa. A single open feedwater heater is used and operates at 0.5 MPa. Compute the cycle
thermal efficiency.
Using the software package the following data are obtained.
73
The work for pump 1 is calculated from
Now, h2 is found from
The fraction of mass extracted from the turbine for the open feedwater heater is obtained from the energy
balance on the open feedwater heater, as shown above.
This means that for each kg of steam entering the turbine, 0.163 kg extracted for the feedwater heater.
The work for pump 2 is calculated from
Now, h4 is found from the energy balance for the pump.
74
Apply the steadyflow conservation of energy to the isentropic turbine.
The net work done by the cycle is
Apply the steadyflow conservation of mass and energy to the boiler.
The heat transfer per unit mass entering the turbine at the high pressure, state 5, is
75
The thermal efficiency is
If these data were used for a Rankine cycle with no regeneration, then th = 35.6 percent. Thus, the one
open feedwater heater operating at 0.5 MPa increased the thermal efficiency by 5.3 percent. However, note
that the mass flowing through the lowerpressure stages has been reduced by the amount extracted for the
feedwater and the net work output for the regenerative cycle is about 10 percent lower than the standard
Rankine cycle.
Below is a plot of cycle thermal efficiency versus the open feedwater heater pressure. The feedwater heater
pressure that makes the cycle thermal efficiency a maximum is about 400 kPa.
Below is a plot of cycle net work per unit mass flow at state 5 and the fraction of mass y extracted for the
feedwater heater versus the open feedwater heater pressure. Clearly the net cycle work decreases and the
fraction of mass extracted increases with increasing extraction pressure.
Why does the fraction of mass extracted increase with increasing extraction pressure?
76
Placement of Feedwater Heaters
The extraction pressures for multiple feedwater heaters are chosen to maximize the cycle efficiency. As a
rule of thumb, the extraction pressures for the feedwater heaters are chosen such that the saturation
temperature difference between each component is about the same.
Example 94
An ideal regenerative steam power cycle operates so that steam enters the turbine at 3 MPa, 500oC, and
exhausts at 10 kPa. Two closed feedwater heaters are to be used. Select starting values for the feedwater
heater extraction pressures.

This means that there is a known temperature at a certain pressure during boiling or condensation. Equation of State: Any relationship among thermodynamic properties is called an equation of state. For example, the equation of state for ideal gas is Pv = RT . 1.5 Equilibrium: a state of balance, i.e. no driving force within the system. It happens when the properties of the system don’t change with time and the properties are the same at any point within the system. Equilibrium state: properties are uniform throughout the entire system. 1.5.1 Thermal equilibrium: temperature is uniform throughout the entire system. 1.5.2 Mechanical equilibrium: pressure is uniform throughout the entire system. 1.5.3 Phase equilibrium: phase (liquid, gas, solid) is uniform throughout the entire system. 1.5.4 Chemical equilibrium: chemical composition is uniform throughout the entire system. 1.5.5 Thermodynamic equilibrium: system is isolated and properties do not change with time.

1.9 Temperature & the Zeroth Law Although we are familiar with temperature as a measure of “hotness” or “coldness,” it is not easy to give an exact definition of it. However, temperature is considered as a thermodynamic property that is the measure of the energy content of a mass. When heat energy is transferred to a body, the body's energy content increases and so does its temperature. In fact it is the difference in temperature that causes energy transfer, called heat transfer, to flow from a hot body to a cold body. Two bodies are in thermal equilibrium when they have reached the same temperature. If two bodies are in thermal equilibrium with a third body, they are also in thermal equilibrium with each other. This simple fact is known as the zeroth law of thermodynamics. body B

Intercooling When using multistage compression.The cycle efficiency becomes You are encouraged to complete the calculations for the other values found in the summary table. For the adiabatic. To determine the intermediate pressure at which intercooling should take place to minimize the compressor work. steadyflow compression process. cooling the working fluid between the stages will reduce the amount of compressor work required. Other Ways to Improve Brayton Cycle Performance Intercooling and reheating are two important ways to improve the performance of the Brayton cycle with regeneration. we follow the standard approach. The compressor work is reduced because cooling the working fluid reduces the average specific volume of the fluid and thus reduces the amount of work on the fluid to achieve the given pressure rise.
the pressure ratios across the two compressors are equal. 64 . more heat must be supplied in the heat addition process. and exit pressure P4. such that P3 = P2 and T3 = T1.Can you obtain this relation another way? Hint: apply the first law to processes 14. During intercooling the compressor exit temperature is reduced. Regeneration can make up part of the required heat transfer. therefore. let’s assume that intercooling takes place at constant pressure and the gases can be cooled to the inlet temperature for the compressor. For twostage compression. P1. The total work supplied to the compressor becomes ] To find the unknown pressure P2 that gives the minimum work input for fixed compressor inlet conditions T1. Intercooling is almost always used with regeneration. we get or.
To supply only compressed air, using intercooling requires less work input. The next time you go to a home supply store where air compressors are sold, check the larger air compressors to see if intercooling is used. For the larger air compressors, the compressors are made of two pistoncylinder chambers. The intercooling heat exchanger may be only a pipe with a few attached fins that connects the large pistoncylinder chamber with the smaller pistoncylinder chamber. Extra Assignment Obtain the expression for the compressor total work by applying conservation of energy directly to the lowand highpressure compressors. Reheating When using multistage expansion through two or more turbines, reheating between stages will increase the net work done (it also increases the required heat input). The regenerative Brayton cycle with reheating is shown above. The optimum intermediate pressure for reheating is the one that maximizes the turbine work. Following the development given above for intercooling and assuming reheating to the highpressure turbine inlet temperature in a constant pressure steadyflow process, we can show the optimum reheat pressure to be
or the pressure ratios across the two turbines are equal.
Vapor and Combined Power Cycles We consider power cycles where the working fluid undergoes a phase change. The best example of this cycle is the steam power cycle where water (steam) is the working fluid. The heat engine may be composed of the following components.

Note the effect of TH and TL on th, Carnot. : The larger the TH the larger the th, Carnot and the smaller the TL the larger the th, Carnot To increase the thermal efficiency in any power cycle, we try to increase the maximum temperature at which heat is added. Reasons why the Carnot cycle is not used: 1− Pumping process 12 requires the pumping of a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated vapor at state 1 and the delivery of a saturated liquid at state 2. 2− To superheat the steam to take advantage of a higher temperature, elaborate controls are required to keep TH constant while the steam expands and does work. To resolve the difficulties associated with the Carnot cycle, the Rankine cycle was devised. Rankine Cycle The simple Rankine cycle has the same component layout as the Carnot cycle shown above. The simple Rankine cycle continues the condensation process 41 until the saturated liquid line is reached. Ideal Rankine Cycle Processes Process Description 12 Isentropic compression in pump 23 Constant pressure heat addition in boiler 34 Isentropic expansion in turbine 41 Constant pressure heat rejection in condenser The Ts diagram for the Rankine cycle is given below.

We use the power system and Ts diagram shown above. P2 = P3 = 6 MPa = 6000 kPa T3 = 350oC P1 = P4 = 10 kPa Pump The pump work is obtained from the conservation of mass and energy for steadyflow but neglecting potential and kinetic energy changes and assuming the pump is adiabatic and reversible.
Since the pumping process involves an incompressible liquid, state 2 is in the compressed liquid region, we use a second method to find the pump work or the h across the pump. Recall the property relation:
Since the ideal pumping process 12 is isentropic, ds = 0.

Extra Assignment For the above example. Increase boiler pressure (for fixed maximum temperature) Availability of steam is higher at higher pressures. Moisture is reduced at turbine exit (we want x4 in the above example > 85 percent). Moisture is increased at turbine exit.The net work done by the cycle is The thermal efficiency is Ways to improve the simple Rankine cycle efficiency: Superheat the vapor Average temperature is higher during heat addition.
