Question: a steam power plant operates on a simple ideal rankine...

Question details

A steam power plant operates on a simple ideal Rankine cycle between the pressure limits of 3000 kPa and 40 kPa. The temperature of the steam at the turbine inlet is 600 oC, and the mass flow rate of steam through the cycle is 31 kg/s. Determine a) the thermal efficiency of the cycle (%) and b) the net power output of the power plant (kW). hl (kJ/kg) v1 (m3/kg) wp_in (kJ/kg) h2 (kJ/kg) h3 (kJ/kg) s3 (kJ/kg.K) Format 234.54 Format 0.002033 Format : 7.07 Format: 390.89 Format: 2332.4 Format: 7.3707 Format: 0.8874 Format 7630.8 Format: 6322.2 Format : 6937 Format: 6032.7 Format: 95.7 Format: 28.3 h4 (kJ/kg) qin (kJ/kg) qout (kJ/kg) wnet (kJ/kg) nth (%) Wnet (MW)
