Learn about T-s diagrams with the following examples of that we have provided in the images below. You are also provided with a brief of explanation about the concept and essence of the diagram so get all started and scroll down to see all of the examples!
A T-s diagram stands for temperature–entropy is the type of diagram most frequently used to analyze energy transfer system cycles. The work done by or on the system and the heat added to or removed from the system can be visualized on the T-s diagram. By the definition of entropy, the heat transferred to or from a system equals the area under the T-s curve of the process. There are some types of diagrams that you can notice in the following images below.
Compression in a compressor and expansion in a turbine are isentropic processes. Therefore it is very useful in power engineering because these devices are used in thermodynamic cycles of power plants. The isentropic assumptions are only applicable to ideal cycles. Real thermodynamic cycles have inherent energy losses due to the inefficiency of compressors and turbines.
Studying these diagrams is a great and easy way to assess the understanding of energy transfer system cycles. Click on any of these block diagrams included and you would know more about the diagram.
