The problem of a working mediumcoolant at the present time is one of the pressing problems of both thermal and atomic power engineering. Recent technical and economic studies have shown that in thermodynamic cycles using steam, the economically optimum parameters and limiting efficiencies have been achieved. Thus there is an urgent need for finding new coolants and working media. One of the ways for solving the given problem might be the use, as working media and coolants, of chemically reacting mixtures in which there are reversible chemical reactions accompanied by the heat effects of chemical reactions and a change in entropy. In the report, the authors present the methodology for calculating the thermodynamic properties of chemically reacting mixtures and thermodynamic cycles using chemically reacting mixtures as the working media.
