非理想的な熱機関における熱効率―Van den Broeckの熱効率のn元への拡張─非理想的な熱機関における熱効率―Van den Broeckの熱効率のn元への拡張─AN00181070 Thermal efficiency on non-ideal heat engine : extension of van den broeck's thermal efficiency to case with n-outputs
We derive general formula of thermal efficiency for non-ideal heat engines with n-outputs, which are extension of Van den Broeck's 2-outputs thermal efficiency. We consider two types of the extended models. The one has a crossing effect between internal working blocks inside the heat engine. The other has a crossing effect only between thermal currents through heat baths. We discuss about the relation between Van den Broeck's efficiency and our efficiencies. These results give us rather general expressions of the thermal efficiency in a framework of non-equilibrium linear response thermodynamics.
