The ideal power cycle components/processes (compression, combustion and expansion) are presented in this three hour course.

When dealing with power cycle components/processes (compression and expansion), air, argon, helium and nitrogen are used as the working fluid. When dealing with combustion, six different fuels (carbon, hydrogen, sulfur, coal, oil and gas) react with air and oxygen enriched air as the oxidant at different stoichiometry values (stoichiometry => 1) and oxidant input temperature values.

For compression and expansion, the technical performance of mentioned power cycle components/processes is presented with a given relationship between pressure and temperature. While for combustion, the technical performance at stoichiometry => 1 conditions and is presented knowing the enthalpy values for combustion reactants and products, given as a function of temperature. This course provides the compression and expansion T - s diagrams and their major performance trends plotted in a few figures as a function of compression and expansion pressure ratio and working fluid mass flow rate. For combustion cases considered, higher heating value (HHV) or enthalpy of combustion, flame temperature and the stoichiometric ratio (oxidant to fuel) are presented in tabular form and plotted in a few figures. Also, both weight and mole basis combustion products are given in tabular form and plotted in a few figures.

In this course, the student gets familiar with the ideal power cycle components/processes and their T - s and h - T diagrams, operation and major performance trends.
