Equivalent combined cycle of an irreversible chemical pump and its performance analysis


Reports on a new type of thermodynamic cycle based on a chemical pump operating in conjunction with three reservoirs at different chemical potentials.  The fundamental optimal relations of the chemical engine and pump operating between two reservoirs were used to derive the fundamental optimal relation of the chemical pump operating with three reservoirs.  Other optimum performance characteristics of the chemical pump are discussed.
