Input information:

Atkinson cycle |  \ncold reservoir temperature | 150 °C  (degrees Celsius)\nhot reservoir temperature | 900 °C  (degrees Celsius)\ncompression ratio | 3\nheat capacity ratio | 1.4


Result:

thermal efficiency | 0.4109\n= 41.09%


Equation:

eta_th = 1 - gamma (r - ((r T_h)\/T_c)^(1\/gamma))\/(r^gamma - (r T_h)\/T_c) |  \neta_th | thermal efficiency\nT_c | cold reservoir temperature\nT_h | hot reservoir temperature\nr | compression ratio\ngamma | heat capacity ratio\n(assuming an ideal gas)
