Assignment #9 PROBLEM 9.1 PROBLEM STATEMENT: An engine operates on an ideal air-standard Stirling cycle. If the pressure and temperature at the beginning of the isothermal compression are 3.5 Mpa and 150 ° C, respectively, find the heat transferred to the regenerator during the isometric heat rejection process if the thermal efficiency of the engine is 40 percent.

This can only be achieved by using an ideal regenerator to transfer heat internally to raise the temperature of the compressed gas from T 2 to T 3 . In an actual Stirling cycle with non-ideal components, the efficiency will be substantially lower than Carnot efficiency, but still relatively high compared with other piston-cylinder cycles, such as Otto and Diesel.
Assignment #9 PROBLEM 9.4 PROBLEM STATEMENT: An air-standard Otto cycle operates with inlet conditions of 1 atm and 27 ºC, and the compression ratio of the engine is 9:1. The maximum temperature reached in the cycle is 1800 K. The temperature dependent specific heat at constant volume for air can be approximated by ( 29 ( 29 - - = × - × g 3 6 2 v c 2.4 10 T 1.04 10 T kJ/kg K where T is the absolute temperature in the range 300 K T 1800K . Derive an expression for the efficiency of this Otto cycle. DIAGRAM DEFINING SYSTEM AND PROCESS:
