I first consider an elevator as a system that lifts a load from a ground floor to a top floor by consuming an input energy. I ask: what amount of load enables the system to perform maximum amount of power? Can I design a mode of operation where I can utilize good enough amount of the input energy better than that of energy utilized at maximum power?
I will then go over to a molecular dynamics simulation study of a heat engine where the working substance is a real gas and try to address similar questions as the elevator system.
