Question details

Problem 3 (40 pts). Consider the Rankine cycle with superheat shown below. The boiler operates at 10 MPa and the condenser at 0.08 bar. Superheated steam enters the turbine at Ti- 400°C, h 309 kJ/kg and si 6.212 kJ/kg-K. The adiabatic turbine produces 1000 kW of work with a steam mass flow rate of 1.155 kg/s 0 Boiler i i -Cooling water Pump CondenserFind: (a) Find turbine outlet specific enthalpy (kJ/kg) (5 points) (b) Find the quality at the steam outlet (5 points) (c) Find the rate of entropy generation in the turbine (10 pts) (d) Draw the expansion process on a T-s diagram (5 points)

(e) Find the turbine isentropic efficiency (15 points)
