Represent subcooling and superheating on P-h and T-S diagram....


Due to superheating suction temperature of compressor increases , increasing compressor power but it also increases the refrigerating effect therefore COP of system remains more or less constant. The superheating is not done to increase the refrigerating effect or COP but it is done to increase the life of compressor.

Explain construction and working of ice plant with neat sketch.

The main cycle used for ice plant is vapor compression cycle with ammonia as the refrigerant in primary circuit and brine solution in secondary circuit. Brine solution takes heat from water in secondary circuit and delivers the heat to ammonia in primary circuit. Thus, the indirect method of cooling is used in ice plant. In secondary circuit brine is cooled in evaporator and then it is circulated around the can which contains water. The heat is extracted from the water in the can and is given to the brine.

List the additives of Lubricant used in S.I. engine and state their advantages.

Role of following lubricant additives (one mark each) 1. Zinc ditinophosphate: - Zinc ditinophosphate serves as an anti – oxidant and anticorrosive additive.

2. Fatty acids: - This type of additives prevents rusting of ferrous engine parts during and form acidic moisture accumulation during cold engine operation.

3. Organic Acids: - This type of additives improves the detergent action of lubricating oil.

4. Ester: - To lower the pour point of lubricating oil.

5. Silicon polymers: - This additive serves as Antifoam Agent.

Draw and explain Battery ignition system.

Battery Ignition system : I t consists of six or twelve volt battery, ignition switch,induction coil, circuit breaker condenser and distributor. All the circuit parts are shown in figure. One terminal of battery is ground to engine frame and other is connected through the ignition switch to one primary terminal of induction coil. The other primary connection is connected to one end of contact point of circuit breaker and through closed points to ground. The ignition switchis made on and engine is crancked. When the contacts touch, the current flows the battery to the switch.

Define the following related I.C. engine

i) Indicated Power (ip) is defined as the power developed by combustion of fuel in the cylinder of engine. It is always more than brake power. ii Brake Power:-  The useful power which is available at the crank shaft is called as brake power.  It is denoted by “B.P.”  It has unit kW iii) B.S.F.C: It is the weight of fuel required to develop 1KW of the brake power for period of 1 hour. Unit of B.S.F.C is Kg/KWh. It is defined as the amount of fuel consumed per unit of break power developed per hour.
