Question details

Problem 8.022 SI Steam heated at constant pressure in a steam generator enters the first stage of a supercritical reheat cycle at 28 MPa, 520°C. Steam exiting the first-stage turbine at 6 MPa is reheated at constant pressure to 500°C. Each turbine stage has an isentropic efficiency of 84% while the pump has an isentropic efficiency of 82%, Saturated liquid exits the condenser that operates at a constant pressure of 38 kPa Determine (a) the quality of the steam exiting the second stage of the turbine (b) the percent thermal efficiency.
