Question: a nuclear power plant generates 800 mw the reactor temperature...

Question details

A nuclear power plant generates 800 MW; the reactor temperature is 300 °C and a river with a water temperature of 20 °C is available. 3. What is the maximum possible thermal efficiency of the plant, and what is the minimum rate at which heat must be discarded to the river? If the actual thermal efficiency of the plant is 58% of the maximum, at what rate must heat be discarded to the river a. b. c. What is the temperature rise of the river if it has a flowrate of 165m3/s?
