Question details

An ideal Rankine cycle with reheat uses water as the working fluid. As shown in the figure below, the conditions at the inlet to the first turbine stage are 1600 lbf/in., 1200°F and the steam is reheated to a temperature of T3 800°F between the turbine stages at a pressure of p3 P2 600 lbf/in.2 3 T Reheat section P2 Steam Turbine 1 Turbine 2 P 1600 Iblin2 P%*-160 in Condenser Pump Ps P O (saturated liquid For a condenser pressure of p5 = P4 = 5 lbf/in.2, determine: (a) the quality of the steam at the second-stage turbine exit. (b) the cycle percent thermal efficiency.
