3 Thermodynamics The Diesel Cycle, aka CIE, Compression Ignition Engine This cycle applies to diesel engines. It is an ideal representation of the process. 1-2: isentropic compression (compression stroke) 2-3: constant pressure heat addition (fuel injection) 3-4: isentropic expansion (exhaust stroke) 4-1: constant volume heat rejection (intake stroke) Only difference between this and the Otto cycle is in the heat addition process. Diesels compress air then add fuel. Auto-ignition not a problem.

Thermodynamics The Diesel Cycle, aka CIE, Compression Ignition Engine Can operate at much higher compression ratios, 12 – 24, implies much higher efficiency Higher efficiency and lower fuel costs (can burn less refined fuels) make them the choice for applications requiring large amounts of power Example: Fiat Corp of Italy produced a diesel engine capable of producting 25,200 Hp at 122 rpm with a cylinder bore of 35 inches and a stroke of 36 inches!! Dual diesel cycle
