In this study, a spark ignition (SI) engine performance is exergetically investigated for different crankshaft speeds. The test engine is VSG413 SI type engine fueled with 95 octane gasoline. The test engine has 1.3 l volume, four stroke, four cylinder, 45 kW maximum power capacity and 98 Nm maximum torque capacity. The experiments are realized under fully loaded test conditions. The crankshaft speed is changed between 1200 rpm and 5000 rpm. In the calculations, actual operating data obtained by experiments are used. It is found that maximum energy and exergy efficiencies are obtained at crankshaft speed of 2500 rpm, which are 29.78% and 27.77%, respectively. Entropy generation rate increases with increase in crankshaft speed and ranged from 0.059 kW/K to 0.253 kW/K for all study.
