Question: consider the rankine cycle with cogeneration shown below steam mass...

Question details

Consider the Rankine cycle with cogeneration shown below. Steam mass flow rates are shown on the figure. The cycle produces work and process heat (Qload) The Rankine cycle state point properties are given in the table. Air is used to cool the condenser. You may assume air has a constant specific heat, cp 1.0 kJ/kg-K and cv 0.72 kJ/kg-K. The R value of air is 0.287 kJ/kg-K.
