- Water enters the pump of a simple Rankine cycle engine at 20
kPa, saturated liquid and 83 kg/s. It exits the boiler at 6 MPa and
450oC and it exits the turbine with a quality of 94%.
The pump efficiency is 75%. Determine:
- The net power produced by the engine, in kW
- The power consumed by the pump, in kW
- The thermal efficiency of the engine
- The isentropic efficiency of the turbine.
