Brayton Cycle Analysis

Jet engines and gas turbines are implementations of the Brayton cycle. PYro's psolve() makes it easy to automate cycle analysis.

Rankine Cycle Analysis

What could be a more classic example of the power of thermodynamics than a steam engine? Today, the Rankine cycle is still essential to nuclear, coal plants, and integrated gas turbine combined cycle power plants. This example uses a boiler and superheater to bring the turbine outlet to saturated conditions.
