The maximum power from a finite reservoir for a Lorentz cycle

Won-Yong Lee and Sang-Soo Kim

Energy, 1992, vol. 17, issue 3, 275-281

Abstract: The production of power from a heat source with finite heat-capacity rates has been studied for the Carnot and Lorentz cycles. The maximum power for the Lorentz cycle is twice that of the Carnot cycle for a given pinch-temperature difference.
