Prof. Bart Cleuren (Hasselt University)

Description

Transforming one form of work into a different form can be done with 100% efficiency. This upper limit has no practical relevance since it requires a reversible operation and hence leads to a zero power output. In this talk I will consider a number of transformation processes and discuss the features of efficiency at maximum power output.
