... to the ideal limit) then it will additionally be isentropic ... It should also be mentioned that real compressors and turbines are not isentropic, but instead have an isentropic efficiency of around 85%, with the result that round-trip storage efficiency for ...
Isentropic Process
... In thermodynamics, an isentropic process or isoentropic process (ισον = "equal" (Greek) εντροπία entropy = "disorder"(Greek)) is one in which for purposes of engineering analysis ... It can be proven that any reversible adiabatic process is an isentropic process ... A simple more common definition of isentropic would be " No change in entropy" ...
