• ### Thermodynamic and Energy Efficiency Analysis of Power

The Gibbs free energy of mixing dissipated when fresh river water flows into the sea can be harnessed for sustainable power generation. Pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) is one of the methods proposed to generate power from natural salinity gradients. In this study we carry out a thermodynamic and energy efficiency analysis of PRO work extraction. First we present a reversible thermodynamic

This provides us a rough upper limit estimate for the unattainable ideal efficiency. Since this is much higher than the 37 figure we can infer that additional considerations have gone into the "thermodynamic limit". In particular the details of the engine cycle will depend on the engine geometry stroke pattern etc.

• ### 8.6 Limiting Reactant Theoretical Yield and Percent

This is called the theoretical yield the maximum amount of product that can be formed from the given amounts of reactants. The actual yield is the amount of product that is actually formed when the reaction is carried out in the laboratory. The percent yield is the ratio of the actual yield to the theoretical yield expressed as a percentage.

The modern SQ Limit calculation is a maximum efficiency of 33 for any type of single junction solar cell. The original calculation by Shockley and Queisser was 30 for a silicon solar cell. Current solar cell production efficiencies vary by the band gap of the semiconductor material as shown on the left. See Junctions Band Gaps page.
