Efficiency of Atkinson Engine at Maximum Power Density using Temperature Dependent Specific Heats

Abstract

Thermodynamic analysis of an ideal air-standard Atkinson cycle with temperature dependant specific heat is presented in this paper. The paper outlines the effect of maximizing power density on the performance of the cycle efficiency. The power density is defined as the ratio of the power output to the maximum cycle specific volume. It showed significant effect on the performance of the cycle over the constant specific heat model. The results obtained from this work can be helpful in the thermodynamic modeling and in the evaluation of real Atkinson engines over other engines. © 2008 Jordan Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering.
