Question: water is the working fluid in an ideal rankine cycle...

Question details

Water is the working fluid in an ideal Rankine cycle. Saturated vapor enters the turbine at 8 MPa, and the condenser pressure is 8 kPa. The mass flow rate of steam entering the turbine is 50 kg/s. Determine (a) the net power developed, in kw. (b) the rate of heat transfer to the steam passing through the boiler, in kw. (c) the percent thermal efficiency. (d) the mass flow rate of condenser cooling water, in kg/s, if the cooling water undergoes a temperature increase of 18°C with negligible pressure change in passing through the condenser. Part A Your answer is incorrect. Try again. Determine the net power developed, in kW. 402.5 kW cycle the tolerance is +/-296
