Thermodynamic Cycles. Page 2. • Look at different cycles that approximate real processes Carnot Cycle is not a good model for most real processes. 𝗣𝗗𝗙 | An important application of thermodynamics is the analysis of power cycles through which the energy absorbed as heat can be continuously converted. A thermodynamic cycle consists of a series of thermodynamic processes Two primary classes of thermodynamic cycles are power cycles and heat pump.
Often adiabatic processes are also used, where no heat is exchanged. Schematics of typical military gas turbine engine: For the purpose of analysis and design, idealized models ideal cycles are created; these ideal models allow engineers to study the effects of major parameters that dominate the cycle without having to spend significant time working out intricate details present in the real cycle model. The Carnot cycle is a cycle composed of the totally reversible processes of isentropic compression and expansion and isothermal heat addition and rejection. Gohilakrishnan Thiagarajan. The various steps are illustrated on page 9 of these notes. Caloric theory Theory of heat.
We need to manipulate them to put them in terms of typical design parameters for gas turbine engines. Note that for a given turbine inlet temperature, T 3 , which is set by material limits there is a compressor pressure ratio that maximizes the work.
Homework 7 PDF. Refrigeration cycles take in work from the surroundings and transfer heat from a low temperature reservior to a high temperature reservior. Schematically, they look like the diagram given above, but with the direction of the arrows reversed. They can also be recognized on thermodynamic diagrams as closed loops with a counter-clockwise direction of travel. A more detailed physical description is given below. The objective of a refrigerator is to lower the internal energy of a body at low temperature the food and transfer that energy to the higher temperature surroundings the room the refrigerator is in.
It requires work typically in the form of electrical energy to do this. The medium for the energy exchange is a working fluid a refrigerant that circulates in a loop through a series of devices. These devices act to add and remove energy from the working fluid. Typically the working fluid in the loop is considered the thermodynamic system. Sometimes the fluid used alternates between gas-phase and liquid-phase, but this detail is not important for understanding the basic process.
A sim plified schematic is shon above.
As the refrigerant circulates around the loop, its internal energy and temperature is alternately raised and lowered by a series of devices. In this manner, the working fluid so that it is colder than the refrigerator air at one point and hotter than the air in the room at another point.
Thus heat will flow in the appropriate direction as shown by the two arrows in the heat exchangers.
The purpose of a reheating cycle is to remove the moisture carried by the steam at the final stages of the expansion process. In this variation, two turbines work in series. The first accepts vapor from the boiler at high pressure.
After the vapor has passed through the first turbine, it re-enters the boiler and is reheated before passing through a second, lower-pressure, turbine.
The reheat temperatures are very close or equal to the inlet temperatures, whereas the optimal reheat pressure needed is only one fourth of the original boiler pressure.
Among other advantages, this prevents the vapor from condensing during its expansion and thereby reducing the damage in the turbine blades, and improves the efficiency of the cycle, because more of the heat flow into the cycle occurs at higher temperature. The reheat cycle was first introduced in the s, but was not operational for long due to technical difficulties. In the s, it was reintroduced with the increasing manufacture of high-pressure boilers , and eventually double reheating was introduced in the s.
The idea behind double reheating is to increase the average temperature.
It was observed that more than two stages of reheating are unnecessary, since the next stage increases the cycle efficiency only half as much as the preceding stage. Today, double reheating is commonly used in power plants that operate under supercritical pressure.
The regenerative Rankine cycle is so named because after emerging from the condenser possibly as a subcooled liquid the working fluid is heated by steam tapped from the hot portion of the cycle. On the diagram shown, the fluid at 2 is mixed with the fluid at 4 both at the same pressure to end up with the saturated liquid at 7. This is called "direct-contact heating". The Regenerative Rankine cycle with minor variants is commonly used in real power stations.
Another variation sends bleed steam from between turbine stages to feedwater heaters to preheat the water on its way from the condenser to the boiler.
These heaters do not mix the input steam and condensate, function as an ordinary tubular heat exchanger, and are named "closed feedwater heaters". This improves the efficiency of the cycle, as more of the heat flow into the cycle occurs at higher temperature. The organic Rankine cycle ORC uses an organic fluid such as n-pentane  or toluene  in place of water and steam. Alternatively, fluids can be used that have boiling points above water, and this may have thermodynamic benefits.
See, for example, mercury vapour turbine. The properties of the actual working fluid has great influence on the quality of steam vapour after the expansion step, influencing the design of the whole cycle. The Rankine cycle does not restrict the working fluid in its definition, so the name "organic cycle" is simply a marketing concept and the cycle should not be regarded as a separate thermodynamic cycle.
The Rankine cycle applied using a supercritical fluid  combines the concepts of heat regeneration and supercritical Rankine cycle into a unified process called the regenerative supercritical cycle RGSC cycle. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Process Water from the condenser at low pressure is pumped into the boiler at. Water is converted into steam at constant pressure by the addition of heat. Reversible adiabatic expansion of steam in the steam turbine. Constant pressure heat rejection in the condenser to convert condensate. Thermal Efficiency of Rankine Cycle: Consider one kg of working fluid, and applying first law to flow system to various. Note that the rankine cycle has a lower efficiency compared to corresponding Carnot.
The reason is that. Power Plants: It is much easier to completely condense the vapor and handle only liquid in the pump.
In a Carnot cycle using superheated steam, the superheating will have to be done at constant temperature along path During this process, the pressure has to be dropped.
This means that heat is transferred to the vapor as it undergoes expansion doing work. This is difficult to achieve in practice. Basic Thermodynamic Cycles Uploaded by api Flag for inappropriate content.
