Question: a superheated steam at a pressure of 40 bar and...
(a) Superheated steam at a pressure of 40 bar and a temperature
500°C is supplied to the turbine of a Rankine cycle. If the condenser
pressure is 0.03 bar, find the thermal efficiency of the cycle. Neglect
feed pump work.
(b) If the isentropic efficiency of the steam turbine in part (a) above is
(i) the enthalpy of the steam discharged into the condenser and
(ii) the thermal efficiency of the cycle.
