For the same peak pressure and heat input


Otto cycle ⇒ 1-2-3-4
Diesel cycle 1-2'-3'-4'
It is clear from T - s diagram that the heat rejected by the Diesel cycle (area below 4'-1) is less then the heat rejection by the Otto cycle (area below 4-1); hence the diesel cycle is more efficient than Otto cycle for the condition of same maximum pressure heat input. The Dual cycle efficiency lies between the Otto and Diesel cycle.


For the same peak pressure and work output


The efficiency is given by 

The work done in Otto and Diesel cycles (areas 1 -2-3-4 and 1-2-3'-4' respectively) can be equal only if the point 3' has a greater entropy than 3 and in that Case the heat rejected by the diesel cycle is less than that of Otto cycle. Hence, for these conditions, diesel cycle is more efficient than Otto cycle and Dual cycle will be in between these two.


Time loss factor in actual cycle is due to


Air standard diesel cycle has a compression ratio of 14 and cut off takes place at 6% of the stroke. What is the cut off ratio?


V3/V2 = Cut - off ratio
V1/ V2 = r = Compression ratio = 14
V1 = 14 V2

In a spark ignition working on the ideal Otto cycle, the compression ratio is 5.5. The work output per cycle (i.e., area of the P - V diagram) is equal to 23.625 x 105 x VcJ, where Vc is the clearance volume in m3. The indicated mean effective pressure is


Compression ratio
r = V/Vc = 5.5


A turbocharged four-stroke direct injection diesel engine has a displacement volume of 0.0259 m3 (25.9 litres). The engine has an output of 950 kW at 2200 rpm. The mean effective pressure (in MPa) is closest to


For four stroke engine


Which one of the following is NOT a necessary assumption for the air-standard Otto cycle?


Air-standard cycle, which is based on the following assumptions:
(i) The working medium is assumed to be a perfect gas and follows the relation pV = mRT or p = ρRT.
(ii) There is no change in the mass of the working medium.
(iii) All the processes that constitute the cycle are reversible.
(iv) Heat is assumed to be supplied from a constant high temperature source and not from chemical reactions during the cycle.
(v) The working medium has constant specific heats throughout the cycle.


For maximum specific output of a constant volume cycle (Otto cycle)


Specific work - Cv(T3 - T4) - Cv(T2 - T1)
