University Of Pennsylvania Operations And Supply Chain Management Assignment Help - Steam enters
Question - Steam enters the turbine of a steam power plant that operates on a simple ideal Rankine cycle at a pressure of 6 MPa, and it leaves as a saturated vapor at 7.5 kPa. Heat is transferred to the steam in the boiler at a rate of 40,000 kJ/s. Steam is cooled in the condenser by the cooling water from a nearby river, which enters the condenser at 15Â°C. Show the cycle on a T-s diagram with respect to saturation lines, and determine (a) The turbine inlet temperature, (b) The net power output and thermal efficiency, and (c) The minimum mass flow rate of the cooling water required.
