Maximum Power and Efficiency to Maximum Power for a Power Plant with n Carnot-Like Cycles

The performance of a stationary power plant with n Carnot-like cycles is optimized. The following irreversibilities exist in each cycle: finite rate heat transfers between the working fluid and external heat sources, internal dissipation of the working fluid, and heat leak between reservoirs. In a previous study, [1] the optimal allocation or effectiveness of the heat exchangers for this power plant were determined by applying two design rules, alternatively: internal thermal conductance fixed or fixed areas In this work, the obtained optimal relations are substituted in the power and the maximum power is calculated, with respect to the isentropic ratio of each of the power plant’s Carnot-like cycles and for both design rules (using only the law of heat conduction). In addition, the efficiency to maximum power is shown.
