Here in this article, we will study Thermodynamic Systems.
Thermodynamic engineering means the field of Science that deals with energies possessed by the gases and the vapors, their conversion in terms of heat, and their relationship with the properties of the System.
The energy transfers are made during the process, which uses certain fluids contained in or flowing through System.
Types of Thermodynamic Systems
Thermodynamic Systems are mainly classified into three groups
The Closed Thermodynamic Systems
In this system, boundaries are closed so that no substance may enter or leave the system; therefore the Mass of the Substance remains constant.
A transfer of Energy may, however, take place at the boundaries.
A “Bomb Calorimeter” is an example of a Closed System.
Here Electrical Energy crosses the boundary to produce a spark between electrodes and initiates combustion.
There is Heat transfer across the boundary after combustion but no Mass transfer takes place either way.
The boundaries of a Closed System are not necessarily to be fixed, they may move or change positions as and when the system expands or contracts.
The Open or Flow Thermodynamic Systems
In this system, the boundaries of which are not closed but have one or more openings through which Mass transfer may also take place in addition to energy transfer like a Closed System.
When the rate of Mass and Energy transfer with time is constant, the System is called a “Steady Flow System”
Isolated Thermodynamic Systems
This System is not influenced by the surroundings.
Neither the Mass nor the Energy crosses the boundary of the System is the basis of this type of System.
