- A regenerative Rankine cycle may approach efficiency of a Carnot cycle between same temperature by
- Considerfollowing options for a simple Rankine cycle i) increasing pressure at exist of turbine ii) increasing average temperature of heat addition iii) decreasing pressure at exit of turbine iv) superheating of steam v) decreasing pressure during superheating. Which combination of above will increase Rankine efficiency?
- The temperature of feed water can be increased in following two ways in a regenerative Rankine cycle i) by passing feed water around turbine casing in direction opposite to flow of steam ii) by bleeding certain portion of steam at the end of h.p expansion & mixing with condensate to make feed water at the temperature of boiler
- In a simple Rankine cycle steam was expanded from 100 bar & 380°C to 1 bar 0.8 dry state. The pump motor consumes 10 kJ/kg of energy. The efficiency of cycle is
- A simple Rankine cycle produces 40 MW of power, 50 MW of process heat and rejects 60 MW of heat to the surroundings. What is the utilization factor of this co generation cycle neglecting the pump work?
- A simple Rankine cycle operates the Boiler at 3 MPa with an outlet temperature of 350°C and the Condenser at 50 kPa. Assuming ideal operation and processes, what is the thermal efficiency of this cycle?
- A steam power plant working on Rankine cycle produces steam in the boiler at a rate of 100 kg/s with enthalpy of 3280 kJ/kg from water whose total heat content is 420 kJ/kg. The plant has Rankine efficiency of 24.65 while pump requires 5 kJ/kg of work. The turbine generates power of
