We have printable examples of TS diagrams that you can click and print. These examples are in the form of pictures, all listed in the following images. To get started, the first example of TS diagrams is posted below.
T–s diagram is used in thermodynamics to visualize changes to temperature and specific entropy during a thermodynamic process or cycle. It is a useful and common tool, particularly because it helps to visualize the heat transfer during a process. For reversible (ideal) processes, the area under the T–s curve of a process is the heat transferred to the system during that process. These diagrams used to show how a change in entropy can affect the temperature of a pure substance when that substance is kept at a constant pressure or specific volume. Take a look at the ammonia and refrigeration TS diagram below.
If a T-s diagram is used to represent the process, the area under the curve will represent the heat transfer that took place during the process. An isentropic process is depicted as a vertical line on a T-s diagram, whereas an isothermal process is a horizontal line. In an idealized state, compression is a pump, compression in a compressor and expansion in a turbine are isentropic processes. Therefore it is very useful in power engineering, because these devices are used in thermodynamic cycles of power plants.
