Question: 10 pts a geothermal power plant operates on the rankine...

Question details

(10 pts) A geothermal power plant operates on the Rankine cycle, where the earth acts as the boiler. At a particular geothermal plant, fluid exits the wellhead (and enters the turbine) at 2 MPa and 250°C. The isentropic efficiency of the turbine is 86% and the condenser pressure is 10 kPa. The pump efficiency is 54%. The net power output from the system, is 8.5 MW Determine: 3. a. (4 pts) The mass flow rate through the system, in kg/s b. (2 pts) The rate of heat rejection from the condenser, in kW. c. (2 pts) The rate of heat input from the ground, in kW d. (2 pt) The overall efficiency of this plant. S.
