Engine energy-balance and the real working-process analysis are the oldest and most validated approaches for the calculation of the engine operating cycles. Since the beginning they have accompanied the engine development processes. In the approach of the engine energy-balance, the combustion chamber, the entire engine or any other part of an internal combustion engine can be treated as an open thermodynamic system. Target of this approach is the analysis of the energy exchanges of the system through its boundaries with the surrounding system. In case of the entire engine the surrounding is represented by the environment.
