Abstract

In this study, a novel high-performance engine cycle composed of 5 processes and including constant temperature process has been developed by using novel numerical methods and compared with the classical dual cycle. The results of the classical thermodynamic model demonstrated that the proposed cycle which has a constant temperature process is better in terms of thermal efficiency and dimensionless net work compared to the classical dual cycle. After the validation of superiority of the developed cycle over the classical dual cycle, performance investigations of the novel cycle engine have been carried out in terms of power, power density, destructed exergy, thermal efficiency, ecological coefficient of performance, effective ecological power density by developing a novel fuel-air cycle model. The influences of design and operational parameters such as cut-off ratio, compression ratio, cycle temperature ratio, equivalence ratio, engine speed, stroke length, cylinder bore, cylinder wall temperature, air intake temperature, pressure ratio, on the performance specifications have been numerically derived.
