What is IC Engine?
A heat engine where combustion of fuel occurs with help of an oxidizer within a combustion chamber is known as internal combustion engine.
Notes on its performance standards:
- Brake Power: That power which is developed by the engine at the output shaft is known as brake power.
- Indicated Power: When the fuel combustion happens, the total power that is generated within the chamber is known as indicated power.
- Frictional Power: When Brake power value is negated from Indicated power value, the result is frictional power standards.
- Thermal Efficiency: When Indicated power is placed in a ratio to per second in fuel, it is known as thermal efficiency. Both Indicated and Brake thermal efficiency is a part of this.
- Volumetric Efficiency: During suction stroke when ratio of actual volume is placed against swept volume of piston it is known as volumetric efficiency.
- Mechanical Efficiency: Brake power to Indicated power is known as mechanical efficiency.
- Specific Output: When brake power is placed on a per unit piston it is known as specific output.
