Question: determine the air and fuel flow rates for a regenerative...

Question details

Determine the air and fuel flow rates for a regenerative gas turbine system producing 150MW of turbine output power (not net output power). The turbine inlet temperature is 2000K, compressor pressure ratio is 6, and the compressor inlet conditions are 100 kPa and 298 K temperature. The compressor and turbine efficiencies are 85% and 90%, respectively, and the heat exchanger effectiveness is 0.88. The fuel is n-butane with heating value of 46,000 kJ/kg. Use EES to do calculations using the variable specific properties approach. Also, use air_ha (not air) for the EES property calculations (air_ha has the real fluid properties of air 2. and doesnt assume air as an ideal gas). Note: use εreg to evaluate he*
