Hi IamIan,
My reference books are in storage, so it may be sometime before I can cite chapter and verse. I'm think the best discussion is in one of the Wiley Engineering Series. Maybe Esbach's. I just looked at the Wiley web site and I guess all my favorites in the series are out of print. I'll get back to this later.

There is an introductory text "Engineering Fundamentals of the Internal Combustion Engine" by Pulkrabek which has something on energy balance, however the nice graph (from the 1st ed.) is energy balance vs engine speed at WOT.
