Short e-Seminars

Engineering Software is pleased to announce that it offers free short e-seminars (webinars) -- in general, Google Hangouts Meet is used to deliver Engineering Software e-seminars (webinars) [up to twenty five (25) participants can sign up for such a free e-seminar (webinar) session at a time].  

 

Engineering Software has developed engineering educational material for energy conversion systems that analyzes ideal, basic and simple power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow when air, argon, helium and nitrogen are considered as the working fluid.
 
Short e-seminars (webinars) hosted by Engineering Software are half an hour (1/2 hour) long e-seminars (webinars) presenting engineering educational material.

 

Energy conversion systems e-seminar (webinar) material breakdown is as follows:

Power Cycles -- Carnot, Brayton, Otto and Diesel 
Power Cycle Components/Processes -- Compression, Combustion (Carbon, Hydrogen, Sulfur, Coal, Oil and Gas) and Expansion
Compressible Flow -- Nozzle, Diffuser and Thrust

Engineering Software e-Seminars (Webinars)

Energy Conversion Analysis -- Half an Hour (1/2 Hour) Long e-Seminar (Webinar)

Description
 

The ideal, simple and basic power cycles (Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle and Diesel Cycle), ideal power cycle components/processes (compression, combustion and expansion) and ideal compressible flow components (subsonic nozzle, diffuser and thrust) are presented in this half an hour e-seminar (webinar).  In the presented power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow analysis, air is used as the working fluid. 
 

For each power cycle thermal efficiency is presented and/or given in its final form.  Also, for each power cycle, a T - s diagram and power cycle major performance trends (thermal efficiency, specific power output and power output) are plotted in a few figures as a function of compression ratio, turbine inlet temperature and/or final combustion temperature and working fluid mass flow rate.  It should be noted that this e-seminar (webinar) does not deal with costs (capital, operational or maintenance). 
 

For compression and expansion, the technical performance of mentioned power cycle components/processes is presented with a given relationship between pressure and temperature.  While for combustion, the technical performance at stoichiometric conditions is presented knowing the enthalpy values for combustion reactants and products, given as a function of temperature.  This webinar provides the compression and expansion T - s diagrams and their major performance trends plotted in a few figures as a function of compression and expansion ratio and working fluid mass flow rate.  For combustion cases considered, combustion products composition on both weight and mole basis is given in tabular form and plotted in a few figures.  Also, flame temperature, oxidant to fuel ratio and fuel higher heating value (HHV) are presented in tabular form and plotted in a few figures.  The provided output data and plots allow one to determine the major combustion performance laws and trends.  
For subsonic nozzle, diffuser and thrust, the technical performance of mentioned compressible flow components is presented with a given relationship between pressure and temperature as a function of Mach Number.  This e-seminar (webinar) provides the compressible flow components T - s diagrams and their major performance trends (stagnation over static temperature and pressure) are plotted in a few figures as a function of the Mach Number. 

 

In this e-seminar (webinar), the student gets familiar with the ideal simple and basic power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow components and their corresponding T - s and h - T diagrams, operation and major performance trends.
 

Objectives
 

At the conclusion of this e-seminar (webinar), the student will: 
  
Be familiar with basic energy conversion engineering assumptions and equations
Know basic elements of Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle, Diesel Cycle, compression, combustion, expansion processes and compressible flow (nozzle, diffuser and thrust) and their p - V, T - s and h - T diagrams
Be familiar with Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle, Diesel Cycle, compression, combustion, expansion and compressible flow (nozzle, diffuser and thrust) operation
Understand general Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle, Diesel Cycle, compression, combustion, expansion and compressible flow (nozzle, diffuser and thrust) performance trends 

 

Power Cycles and Combustion Analysis -- Half an Hour (1/2 Hour) Long e-Seminar (Webinar) 
 

Description
 

In the presented power cycles analysis, air is used as the working fluid.  However, for the purpose of the Brayton Cycle analysis, in addition to air, argon, helium and nitrogen are considered as the working fluid. 
 

For each power cycle, a T - s diagram, a p - V diagram, where applicable, and power cycle major performance trends (thermal efficiency, specific power output, power output, specific fuel consumption based on the fuel higher heating value (HHV) and ideal and complete combustion conditions, oxidant to fuel ratio and both weight and mole basis combustion products are plotted in a few figures as a function of compression ratio, turbine inlet temperature and/or final combustion temperature, working fluid mass flow rate and/or specific mass flow rate.  It should be noted that this e-seminar (webinar) does not deal with costs (capital, operational or maintenance). 
 

In order to make it easy to follow the presented combustion analysis of the ideal power cycles, this e-seminar (webinar) includes a combustion analysis that uses standard air as the oxidant when burning six different fuels at stoichiometric conditions and one fuel (methane -- CH4) at oxidant rich conditions (stoichiometry > 1).  Also, the combustion analysis presents how oxidant preheat temperature values have an impact on the flame temperature.  

 

For combustion analysis, the technical performance at stoichiometric and oxidant rich conditions (stoichiometry > 1) conditions is presented knowing the enthalpy values for combustion reactants and products, given as a function of temperature.  For combustion cases considered, combustion products composition on both weight and mole basis is given in tabular form and plotted in a few figures.  Also, flame temperature, oxidant to fuel ratio and fuel higher heating value (HHV) are presented in tabular form and plotted in a few figures.  The provided output data and plots allow one to determine the major combustion performance laws and trends.  
 

Ideal, simple and basic power cycles (Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle and Diesel Cycle) and ideal combustion are presented in this one hour e-seminar (webinar).
