Power Cycles and Power Cycle Components/Processes Analysis

The ideal, simple and basic power cycles (Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle for both power and propulsion applications, Otto Cycle and Diesel Cycle) and ideal power cycle components/processes (compression, combustion and expansion) are presented in this course material.  In the presented power cycles and power cycle components/process analysis, air is used as the working fluid. For each power cycle thermal efficiency derivation is presented with a simple mathematical approach.  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 course material 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 specific enthalpy values for combustion reactants and products, given as a function of temperature.  This course material 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 pressure ratio and working fluid mass flow rate.  For each combustion case considered, combustion products composition on both weight and mole basis is given in tabular form and plotted in a few figures.  Also, flame temperature, stoichiometric 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. In this course material, the student gets familiar with the ideal simple and basic power cycles and power cycle components/processes and their T - s and h - T diagrams, operation and major performance trends.

Power Cycles and Power Cycle Components/Processes Ideal vs Real Operation Analysis

The simple and basic power cycles (Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle and Diesel Cycle) and power cycle components/processes (compression, combustion and expansion) are presented in this course material.In the presented power cycles and power cycle components/process analysis, air is used as the working fluid. For each power cycle, the thermal efficiency derivation is presented with a simple mathematical approach.Also, for each power cycle, a T - s diagram and 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, working fluid mass flow rate and both isentropic compression and expansion efficiency.It should be noted that this course material does not deal with costs (capital, operational or maintenance). For compression and expansion, the technical performance of mentioned power cycle components/processes for ideal and real operation is presented with a given relationship between pressure and temperature and compression and expansion efficiency. Complete combustion at constant pressure with and without heat loss is presented.Six different fuels (carbon, hydrogen, sulfur, coal, oil and gas) react with air as the oxidant at different stoichiometry values (stoichiometry => 1) and oxidant inlet temperature values. Reactants and combustion products specific enthalpy values change with an increase in the temperature and such specific enthalpy values are presented in a plot where one can notice the flame temperature definition.  Physical properties of basic combustion reactants and products species are presented in a specific enthalpy vs temperature plot. The combustion technical performance at stoichiometry => 1 conditions is presented knowing the specific enthalpy values for combustion reactants and products, given as a function of temperature.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. In this course material, the student gets familiar with the simple and basic power cycles and power cycle components/processes and their T - s and h - T diagrams, ideal vs real operation and major performance trends.

Advancing Installation Asset Management through Public-Private and Public-Public Partnerships (Course)

ORIGINALLY PRESENTED August 14, 2014 Course Length: 1.5 Hours Course Credit Hours: 1.5 PDH Moderator: Susan Morris, Principal, Booz Allen Hamilton Speakers: Ivan Bolden, Chief, Army's Privitization and Partnerships, Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management Barry Scribner, Jones Lang LaSalle Shannon Connor, American Water Military Services Group Course Overview: This course will provide a fundamental understanding of the Public-Public and Public-Private Partnership (P4) process, share best-practice applications shared via various partnerships between government and private sector organizations, and offer insights that can facilitate the establishment of a robust and effective partnering program for design, construction and base operating support enabling critical mission capability at military installations. Discussion points will include how to assist in the identification and exploration of potential partnering opportunities such as with the local cities/counties/states, utility companies, universities, and private sector property managers, developers, and financiers. Additionally, this webinar will share how to leverage tabletop (TTX) exercises at military installations to serve as a model for other installations regarding how to identify and leverage meaningful partnerships for mutual benefit; and the development of a toolbox for installation commanders, HHQ staff leaders and other key stakeholders to facilitate application of this P4.
