In this one hour course, the open, simple Diesel Cycle used for stationary power generation is considered.

The Diesel 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 Diesel Cycle is presented in the p - V and T - s diagrams and its major performance trends (thermal efficiency and power output) are plotted in a few figures as a function of compression and cut off ratio values, combustor outlet temperature, some fixed cylinder geometry and both isentropic compression and expansion efficiency. It should be noted that this online course does not deal with costs (capital, operational or maintenance).

In this course, the student gets familiar with the Diesel Cycle, its components, p - V and T - s diagrams, ideal and operation and major performance trends.

#### Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

• Understand basic energy conversion engineering assumptions and equations
• Know basic components of the Diesel Cycle and its p - V and T - s diagrams
• Be familiar with the Diesel Cycle ideal and real operation
• Understand general Diesel Cycle performance trends

#### Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 10 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
