Any higher value of T f , yields smaller magnitude of W. Any lower value of T f , while increasing W, violates the 2 nd Law.

Now, consider a process in which there is no net change in the environment. Work is no longer produced, and there is no heat interaction with the environment. This is equivalent to isolating the two bodies and letting heat flowbetween them irreversibly.

Alternative method: To obtain the maximum possible work output let the heat engine operating between the two bodies be a (reversible) Carnot engine, whose upper and lower temperatures are the instantaneous temperatures of the two bodies (thereby ensuring reversible heat transfer between the engine and the two objects).

To maximize the produced work, the air in each cylinder should be brought to the conditions of the environment (i.e., the final state should be described by T atm , P atm ). To accomplish this, consider the following two step process:

This corresponds to 1.8 \$/kW-h, which is rather expensive, given that residential electricity rates average around 25 cents/kW-h.

Let us redo the problem by treating the process in “one-step” by choosing the tank+turbine as the system, in which there is a single net heat interaction and a single net work interaction. (Since the max, or min, work is a state function, the final result should not depend upon the path that was taken.)

If air flows into the system, the enthalpy of the stream is that of the surroundings, H a . If air is discharged to the surroundings, it must be discharged at the same temperature and pressure of the surroundings, so that H out = H a , to maximize the produced work (i.e., the air in the cylinder should be brought to the conditions of the environment).

We can redo the problem in another manner as well. Instead of allowing flow across a turbine, we can imagine that the gas in the tank is connected to an expander/compressor in which the gas, treated as a closed system, is allowed to expand or contract until its final pressure and temperature are equal to that of the surroundings.

Now, the 1 st Law for a closed system requires that

Note that the closed system, which can either be compressed or expanded, always yields

When expanded, some of the work done by the gas must be lost in pushing back the

atmosphere, that is

magnitude is smaller than the magnitude of W). When the gas is compressed, so that

The idea of removing the work done by the atmosphere to yield the net work that can be recovered by the expansion/compression is a subtle concept. We can proceed in even

another way that avoids the need to explicitly determine

the system (which is again closed) and the atmosphere as our combined system (which is also a closed system). All heat interactions are therefore internal, i.e., between the system and atmosphere only. While the total volume is fixed, there is still work being delivered to some external agent, so the combined system is not isolated (although adiabatic). So,

Whether we apply an open system, or closed system analysis, the net effect of each process is the same, where air is taken from some initial state to a final state with the same conditions as the surroundings. Hence, it is encouraging (though of course expected if all had been done correctly) that both analyses yield the same result.

We can allow reversible heat transfer between the hot and cold streams via the use of a Carnot engine (or series of Carnot engines) to generate work. The maximum power that can be produced will be generated when the two streams are brought to the same final temperature.

So begin by first determining the maximum power output from the thermal contact (via the use of a Carnot engine) of the hot and cold streams. A steady-state 1 st Law balance and entropy balance, for complete reversible operation and with the Carnot engine included within the system, yield the following

This power output can now be used to run a Carnot refrigerator that operates between the environment at 10 o C and the cold water stream entering component B. (While this power output can be directly dissipated into the cold water stream entering B, a higher rate of energy transfer into the cold stream will occur through the use of the Carnot engine.)

We can improve the process in the following manner, requiring even less electrical energy than before. Note that after the hot and cold water streams are brought into thermal contact via a Carnot engine they achieve a final temperature of 301.9 K. The surroundings, however, are at a lower temperature of 283.2 K. We can therefore, through the use of another Carnot engine, lower the temperatures of these two exiting stream to be that of the environment, generating an even greater work output than before.
