Otto Cycle: Detailed outline and Derivation of its Efficiency
4,076 plays

This lesson will help you obtain comprehensive knowledge on the process of otto cycle. As this lesson begins you'll be taught about the assumptions which are necessary to know before studying the concepts of IC engine cycles. Then, the educator elucidates otto cycle and explains its process using PV diagram and TS diagram. Finally, you'll also learn how you to ​derive the efficiency of the otto cycle.

in process 2-3 we add fuel in the system then how mR is constant mass in the system changes due to addition of mass of external fuel

  3. AIR STANDARD CYCLES (IDEAL I C ENGINE CYCLE) . Assumptions Air is the working fluid and it is assumed as an ideal gas. 2. The specific heat remain constant 3. The working fluid does nof undergo any chemical change 4. The working fluid is of fixed mass 5. All the processes are reversible. 3 The working fluid does nat undergo any chemicalichange

  7. MEAN EFFECTIVE PRESSURE Mean EffechM.E.P It is an imaginary or hypothetical constant pressure during expansion which produces same work as that of actual cycle. M.E.P indicates net work output for a given swept volume. Greater the M.E.P greater is the work output same work dhence greater is th P,n= , fr a given swept volume w
