Abstract

This paper deals with the research of a meaningful reference cycle to which actual cycles may be compared for the evaluation of their "fitness degree". Vapor-liquid and gas-liquid cycles, with and without regeneration, are considered; in addition to monocomponent working fluids, also non-azeotropic mixtures are examined.
