What is Otto Cycle?
We know that actual analysis is complicated so we use some assumption to analysis the petrol engine. The main assumption is that the working fluid is ideal air and heat is transfer by heat reservoir so this cycle known as air standard cycle. This cycle was given by Nicolas Otto so also known as Otto cycle.
Working of Otto Cycle Engine:
Air Standard Analysis of Otto cycle:
1. Constant volume heat addition:
2. Isentropic Expansion:
3. Constant volume heat rejection:
4. Isentropic compression:
Otto Cycle Efficiency:
Today we have discussed about what is Otto cycle and and working of otto cycle engine. We have also learnt about how to calculate Otto cycle efficiency. If you have any query regarding this article, ask by commenting. Thanks for reading it.
