Abstract: A non-endoreversible Curzon and Ahlborn cycle is analyzed by introducing afactor of non-endoreversibility. The form of power output and ecological function, andthe role of this factor is discussed. The Gutkowics-Krusin, Procaccia and Ross method tobuild a general expression for both the power output and the ecological function for thiscycle is used. A numerical analysis of these expresions is made and the results arecompared with other kind of approaches found in the literature of finite timethermodynamics.
Keywords: efficiency; finite time thermodynamics; non-endoreversible cycle
