Question: a steam power plant operates on an ideal reheat rankine...

Question details

A steam power plant operates on an ideal reheat Rankine cycle between the pressure limits of 15 MPa and 10 kPa. The mass flow rate of steam through the cycle is 12 kg/s. Steam enters both stages of the turbine at 500°C. The moisture content of the steam at the exit of the low-pressure turbine is not to exceed 5 percent. Multi-part problem: a) the pressure at which reheating takes place b) the total rate of heat input in the boiler c) the thermal efficiency of the cycle
