Applications for a New Thermodynamic Cycle
by Dr Noel Barton
Abstract: Take hot dry air, then sequentially expand it, spray cool it and
re-compress it to the inlet pressure whilst allowing further
evaporative cooling. That thermodynamic cycle defines a heat engine
with advantages for certain applications.
The thermodynamic cycle will be analysed and two applications will be
described. For a continuous-flow version, the result is a 20% boost
in gas turbine output with no extra fuel consumption or emissions.
For a piston-in-cylinder version, there is the prospect of
unconventional but cheap solar power, including the possibility of
thermal storage so as to give 24/7 despatchability.
