Question: 1 a regenerative gas turbine cycle has inlet and maximum...

Question details

1. A regenerative gas turbine cycle has inlet and maximum temperatures of 300 and 1600 K, isentropic efficiencies of the compressor and turbine of 0.85, and a regenerator effectiveness of 0.9. Using air- standard assumptions, calculate and plot the cycle thermal efficiency and net work per unit mass as a function of the pressure ratio TP, with rp ranging from 2 to 20. Identify the values of rp which maximize thermal efficiency and net work. You can use a constant specific heat formulation for this problem. I would encourage you to write a simple code (MatLab, Mathematica, Excel, or whatever) to make the plots.
