Question details

Consider a 210-MW steam power plant that operates on a simple non-ideal Rankine cycle. Steam enters the turbine at 10 MPa and 500°C and is cooled in the condenser at a pressure of 5 kPa. Assume both turbine and pump have an isentropic efficiency of 85 percent. Show the cycle on a T-s diagram with respect to saturation lines, and determine (a) the quality of the steam at the turbine exit, and (b) the thermal efficiency of the cycle, and (c) the mass flow rate of the steam.
