The Carnot Cycle is an ideal simple cycle consisting of isentropic compression and expansion and isothermal heat addition and heat rejection. The Carnot Cycle thermal efficiency determines the highest thermal efficiency that a heat engine can achieve. In this one hour online course, the closed, simple Carnot Cycle used for stationary power generation is considered.

The Carnot Cycle thermal efficiency is presented only for the air as the working fluid. The thermal efficiency derivation is presented with a simple mathematical approach. The Carnot Cycle is presented in a T - s diagram and its major performance trends are plotted in a few figures as a function of heat addition and heat rejection temperature values.

In this course, the student gets familiar with the Carnot Cycle, its components, T - s diagram, operation and major performance trends.
