Abstract

We calculate the efficiency at maximum power (EMP) of an isothermal chemical cycle in which particle uptake occurs at a fixed chemical potential but particle release takes place at varying chemical potential. We obtain the EMP as a function of Δμ/kT, where Δμ is the difference between the highest and lowest reservoir chemical potentials and T is the absolute temperature. In the linear response limit, Δμ ≪ kT, the EMP tends to the expected universal value 1/2.
