In a Dual cycle the heat transfer during the constant volume process is double that during the constant pressure process. The compression ratio is 14 and the air initial conditions are 1 bar and 27oC. If the maximum pressure in the cycle is 60 bar, calculate:
Maximum temperature
Heat added at constant volume and constant pressure per kg of air
Cycle thermal efficiency
Net work per kg of air
Exergy destroyed associated with the cycle. Assume the source temperature to be the same
temperature as the maximum cycle temperature, and the sink temperature to be the same as
minimum cycle temperature.
Sketch the cycle on P-v and T-s diagrams
