Plymouth State University Operations And Supply Chain Management Assignment Help - heat is transferred
Question - In one type of nuclear power plant, heat is transferred in the nuclear reactor to liquid sodium. The
liquid sodium is then pumped through a heat exchanger where heat is transferred to boiling water.
Saturated vapor steam at 700 lbf/in.2 exits this heat exchanger and is then superheated to 1100 F in
an external gas-fired super heater. The steam enters the turbine, which has one (open-type)
feedwater extraction at 60 lbf/in 2. The isentropic turbine efficiency is 87%, and the condenser
pressure is 1 lbf/in.2. Determine the heat transfer in the reactor and in the super heater to produce a
net power output of 1000 Btu/s.
