A new cyclic system, which is referred to as an irreversible three source chemical pump, is put forward. The cyclic system operating among three reservoirs at different chemical potentials is analogous to a heat transformer operating among three heat reservoirs. The influence of the irreversibility of finite rate mass transfer between the working fluid and the reservoirs on the cyclic performance of the chemical pump is taken into account. The optimal relation between the coefficient of… CONTINUE READING
