Brayton (jet engine) Cycle Template

UPDATED: 03/22/2018

(Cold Air Standard) Template including Regeneration

This spreadsheet provides a template for analysis of the Brayton Cycle using the Cold Air Standard (constant specific heats). The user must fill in the data in the top grid. From that data, the cells in the second grid are updated, and Pressure-volume and Temperature-entropy diagrams are generated. Make sure your volume is set up high when you open it! A second sheet in the same workbook (not seen below but operating in a similar fashion) is set up to include Regeneration.

Spreadsheet for analysis of the Brayton (jet engine) thermodynamic cycle. A schematic is at the left center. Property states are entered in the top grid. The four processes are recorded in the left middle. Pressure-volume and Temperature-entropy diagrams are automatically generated at the bottom
