2 Combustion System Analysis Consider the complete combustion of octane in 150% theoretical air,C8H18Combustion ChamberProducts (p)PTA = 150%In the previous lecture, we found the balanced reaction,The First Law applied to the system identified above is,
3 Combustion System Analysis C8H18Combustion ChamberProducts (p)PTA = 150%reactants(air and fuel)combustion productsPotential issue: There are no Dh values (except for O2 and N2). This has the potential to cause a datum state problem.
4 Resolving the Datum State Problem In combustion calculations, the enthalpy of all stable* elements is defined as zero at the standard reference state (SRS),*‘Stable’ means chemically stable at the SRS. For example, diatomic oxygen (O2) is stable at the SRS. Monatomic oxygen (O) is not stable at the SRS.
5 Enthalpy of FormationThe enthalpy of a compound at the standard reference stateHeat released in an exothermic reaction (or absorbed in an endothermic reaction) when a compound is formed from its elements. (Elements and compound at the SRS)Example – MethaneCCH25C41 atm25C2H1 atm2
7 Enthalpy of Formation Values Using EES* …*Unit setting = molar
8 Enthalpy of Formation Values Results ...Conclusion: EES uses the SRS as the datum state for enthalpy for the ideal gases! Therefore, enthalpy of formation values can be calculated from EES using the ideal gas substances (except AIR)
9 Enthalpy Values in Combustion What do we know so far?The enthalpy of a stable element at the SRS is 0The SRS is 25°C, 0.1 MPaThe enthalpy of a compound at the SRS is the enthalpy of formation (Table 15.1 or from EES)
10 Enthalpy Values at Other States The enthalpy of a component at any temperature in a combustion process can be evaluated by,Accounts for the enthalpy difference relative to the SRSHow is the enthalpy difference in brackets determined??
11 Enthalpy Values at Other States Three possibilities ...If the heat capacity of the component can be assumed constant,If the constant heat capacity assumption is not accurate enough, then use the ideal gas tables (Table C.16c). In this case the datum state for the table does not have to match the enthalpy of formation.Use a set of property tables for all components that has all enthalpy values referenced to the SRS. Does such a thing exist?
12 Enthalpy Values at Other States Exploring Option 3 from the previous slide ...If a thermodynamically consistent set of tables exists, thenTherefore the enthalpy of the component could simply be looked up in a table at the given temperature,If something like this were available ... combustion calculations would be EESy!
13 Enthalpy Values at Other States ALL of the ideal gas enthalpy reference states (except for the ideal gas ‘AIR’) in EES are referenced to the SRS!This is from the EES Help Menu for the ideal gas CO2 ...All other ideal gases in EES (except AIR) say the same thing!Significance: Combustion calculations just became EESy!
14 Heat of ReactionConsider an aergonic combustion process as shown belowFuelProducts (P)Combustion ChamberReactants (R)AirThe First Law applied to this system results in,Dividing by the molar flow rate of the fuel,
15 Heat of ReactionThe molar flow rate ratios are the molar coefficients from the balanced combustion reaction! Therefore,This is known as the molar heat of reaction.
16 Heating Values of Fuels Given: Gaseous octane (C8H18) is burned completely in 100% theoretical air. The reactants and the products are at the SRS.Find: The heat released during this combustion process per mole of fuel for the following cases,the water in the products is all vaporthe water in the products is all liquid
17 Heating ValuesThe system boundary is drawn around the combustion chamber. Applying the First Law results in,Dividing both sides of this equation by the molar flow rate of the fuel,Number of moles of reactant per mole of fuelNumber of moles of product species per mole of fuelHow are these found?
18 Heating ValuesThe molar flow rate ratios on the previous slide are the molar coefficients from the balanced combustion reaction (for one mole of fuel)! Therefore,Notice: PTA = 100% means stoichiometric combustionObservations ...The importance of being able to balance the combustion reaction is evident!As long as the combustion process is aergonic, the First Law will be as written above, independent of the conditions in and out of the combustion chamber!
19 Heating ValuesFor the complete combustion of normal octane in 100% theoretical air, we previously found,Applying the First Law to the system,
20 Heating ValuesNow we have an interesting problem. Is the water liquid or gas (or both)?
21 Heating ValuesLet’s consider both extremes (1) the H2O is all vapor and (2) the H2O is all liquid.All vapor water ...All liquid water ...
22 Heating Values All vapor water ... Lower Heating Value (LHV) All liquid water ...Higher Heating Value (HHV)Observations ...The reactants and products are at the SRSThe reaction occurs with PTA = 100% (xi = ni )The difference between the HHV and the LHV is the enthalpy of vaporization of water!
23 Heating Values 1 mol fuel TSRS Products TSRS, PSRS PSRS (vapor H2O)TSRS, PSRSStoichiometric airProducts(liquid H2O)
24 Heating ValuesThe heating values represent the maximum possible heat transfer that can occur per mole of fuel.The reactants and products are at the SRSThe HHV represents fully condensed water vaporThe LHV represents all water vaporThese values provide a basis for the combustion efficiency,
25 ExampleBack to our problem ... Is there liquid water in the products at the SRS? If so, how much?Will water condense?Since TSRS < Tdp, water will condense
26 ExampleHow much water will condense? At TSRS = 25°C, the mole fraction of water vapor in the products is,The mole fraction of the water vapor at 25°C can be found,
