Lenoir cycle | Working process | Thermal efficiency

The Lenoir cycle is a thermodynamic cycle that can be invented by Jean Joseph Etienne Lenoir in 1860 is often used to model a pulse jet engine. 

Process of Lenoir cycle :

All type of process individually done in a heat engine in Lenior cycle. 

The Lenoir cycle consists of four processes which are following below. 
  • constant-volume gas expansion process. From the diagram shown below the ideal gas in the system absorbs some amount of heat from the heat source at a high temperature and then expands thus the work was done on surroundings. 
  • reversible adiabatic gas expansion process. In this process, the system is thermally insulated. The gas expands continuously and does work on surrounding, which causes the system to cool to a lower temperature. 
  • reversible isothermal gas compression process. In this process, work has done surrounding gas and cause a loss of heat.
  • reversible adiabatic gas compression process. In this process, surrounding continue to do work to a gas, which causes the temperature to rise back to high temperature attain in the first process.

Concept of production

Production is the transformation of inputs into output where inputs are used in many ways such as land, labour, capital, raw material etc. 

Production concept emphasis on low production costs, and high production efficiency and mass production simply said a large amount of the cheapest goods. 

The function of production :

The function of production is the technological relationship between inputs and output in physical terms. An algebraic expression for production is Q = f (K, L)

Where Q = The quantity of output produced per unit time
K = Capital 
L = Labour 

Characteristics of the production system : 

  • The production system has its own objective.
  • The system transforms the various inputs to the useful output.
  • Does not operate in isolation from the other organization system. 
  • There exists a procedure which controls and improve system performance. 

Types of production : 

  • Continuous production 
  • Batch production 
  • Mass production 
  • Job-shop production 

Definition of production

Production is the method of turning raw materials or inputs into finished goods or products means the creation of something from basic inputs. Production is the process of transformation because it is done to satisfy human wants. The process of transformation is done in the following ways. 

  1. Disintegration: One input is used to produce many types of output. 
  2. Integration or Assembly: Many inputs are used to produce only one output. 
  3. Service: Value of the product is increased by providing services.

    Advantages and disadvantages of continuous variable transmission

    Continuous variable transmission differs from the automated manual transmission, which can seamlessly change through an infinite number of effective gear ratios between maximum and minimum values. It is a clutchless gearbox but in some applications, a centrifugal clutch is added to ease neutral stance. It consists of a belt which rotates and slides between two tapered drums as you accelerate the vehicle, The belt begins to rotate on the drums and, at the same time, to slide on the drums from one side to the other. This decides the drive to a driven ratio of torque which further varies the speed of the vehicle. It delivers a constant acceleration from a complete stop to cruising speed with the ability provide to set the operating point, an engine can be run to provide the maximum fuel efficiency. Let us have a deep insight into the pros and cons of the continuous variable transmission (CVT) in this article.

    The automated manual transmission is also known as a semi-automatic transmission is not fully automatic or clutch-less transmission. This type of transmission mechanism involves the use of two key parts such as a hydraulic actuator system and an electronic control unit that engages and disengages the clutch while executing gear shifts. It is just same as a kit that can be added to any regular manual transmission thus car makers use it on some low-cost cars because this type of transmission is very cost-effective and is relatively cheaper than the other auto transmission. Let us have a deep insight into the pros and cons of an automated manual transmission. 

    Advantages of automated manual transmission : 

    • Low maintenance.

    • Jerky shifts if you drive aggressively.
    • Who wants a pure automatic car experience, not for enthusiasts. 

    Advantages and disadvantages of dual clutch transmission

    A dual-clutch transmission works on a similar principle of an automated manual transmission but this transmission uses two clutches instead of one. They are used for odd and even gear sets that makes it more efficient gearbox contained into one single housing.

    Advantages and disadvantages of CNG

    CNG stated as compressed natural gas is a fuel used in place of petrol, and diesel fuel It produces fewer undesirable gases in the combustion process than petrol and diesel. Let us have a deep insight into the pros and cons of CNG in this article. 

    Advantages of CNG : 

    • Less Harmful than coal or oil and environmentally friendly.
    • Easy storage and transport because natural gas stored and transported through pipelines, small storage units, cylinders or tankers on land and sea.
    • The vehicles operating on CNG has lower maintenance costs as compared to hydrocarbon fuel-powered vehicles so reduced fuel cost.
    • CNG gives a better life to lubricating oils, as it does not contaminate and dilute the crankcase oil.
    • It produces less pollution in the form of CO2, CO, NOx and SOx as compared to petrol.
    • It is lighter than air and tends to dissipate when there is a leakage unlike Propane, which is heavier than air, collects into explosive pockets.
    • Using CNG makes the engine cleaner and more efficient.
    • Reduced maintenance cost.
    • CNG has higher octane levels averaging over 120 octane.
    • CNG is abundant in the U.S The country has extensive natural gas resources and a well-established network of pipelines. 
    • Switching to CNG can help ease the country's dependence to foreign oil.

    Disadvantages of CNG :

    • Reduced power for the same engine capacity.
    • CNG filling stations are very limited.
    • Performance of the car is reduced significantly. 
    • Acceleration is slower so you may have to rev the engine more to get going.
    • Burning of natural gas also releases carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other carbon components which are greenhouse gases that cause global warming.
    • Provide less mileage than gasoline.
    • Leaks of natural gas are dangerous it may cause explosions or fire. the main danger is that the odourless and leaks cannot be detached unless some odorant has been added to the gas.
    • Conversion kits tend to come with a high-cost typically it would only make financial sense to convert a late model vehicle to CNG because of the conversion cost.
    • Storage space is a very big issue because CNG tanks are large in size so boot space is reduced.
    • Cars with CNG kits should always be started on petrol and run for a few kilometres before being switched to the green fuel. This warms up the engine better and gets the motor well lubricated. This cause the injectors to crust and get blocked.
    • Non-renewable energy source.
    • Natural gas is a source of violence and terrorism.
    • Natural gas emits some quantities of greenhouse gas.
