Unformatted text preview: the technical feasibility of generating energy using the proposed approach] (3) Carnot engine operating with finite temperature reservoirs (based on SVNA 5.14) A Carnot engine operates between an infinite hot reservoir and a finite cold reservoir of the heat capacity C t C. (a) Determine an expression for the work of pain as a function of , T H (constant), T C (t), and the initial cold reservoir temperature T Co. (b) What is the maximum work attainable? This corresponds to infinite time, when T C becomes equal to T H . Hint 1: Use the differential form of Carnots equation: dQ H dQ C = T H T C ( t ) Hint 2: Split the differential energy balance as dW+dQ c +dQ H =0 (4) MDK 2.59  Carnot Refrigeration cycle (5) MDK 3.17 Change of state across a throttle (6) MDK 3.36 & 3.37 Rankine power generation cycle...
