Engineering thermodynamics mainly focuses on the principles and methods for the heat-work conversion and to improve heat-work conversion efficiency. In current literatures, discussions are mainly focused on the heat-work cycles, which converts heat to work. Besides, the core physical quantity of heat-work cycles is entropy, which presents the heat-work conversion ability of the system. As for reversed cycles, the discussions are not quite detailed, and most of them applied the theory for heat-work cycles directly on reversed cycles.
However, it's well known that heat cannot be fully converted to work in a reversible thermodynamic cycle, which leads an efficiency less than 1. For reversed cycles, the heat output from the cycle can be much more than the net work the cycle costs, which derives a coefficient of performance (COP) more than 1. This phenomenon implies the principles of heat-work conversion in ordinary heat-work cycles and reversed cycles are somehow different, and some problems are naturally drawn as follows: (1) Is the COP of the reversed Carnot cycle the maximum possible COP for all reversed cycles within two temperature limits? (2) Heat can be judged from its quality, i.e. its temperature, and does the mechanical work have its quality?
To answer these questions, this work analyzed and discussed the theorem, principle, and core physical quantity of reversed thermodynamic cycles. First, the principle for ordinary thermodynamic cycles are briefly reviewed, including the Carnot theorem and its proof, and the derivation of the concept of entropy from the Clausius' original approach. Second, current conclusions of reversed cycles are reviewed and the air compression refrigeration cycle is taken as an example. The analysis comparing two cycles within given temperature limits presented that for given two temperature limits, the COP of the reversed Carnot cycle is the minimum possible COP, which is different from current conclusions. The quality of volumetric work is then discussed, and a new reversed cycle named reversed
