This project aims at obtaining the nonequilibrium thermodynamic properties of systems subject to periodically driven forces. In the first part, we intend to obtain such a properties and second to establish general considerations about effiency at finite times. In particular we shall investigate the following cases: interacting brownian particles and non-interacting brownian particles subject to distinct periodically driven forces. The role of interaction between particles will be investigated.
