Question details

You are working at a power-production company. In an effort to incorporate more green energy sources into the company profile, your boss is investigating the feasibility of building a small- scale geothermal power plant. The idea is to build a small steam cycle that receives heat from the geothermal reservoir, which has a temperature of 200 °C and can provide a sustained 20 MW of heat to the steam cycle. Your boss asks you to design the steam cycle with the goal of producing approximately 8 MW of net work output. Is this goal achievable? Briefly explain.
