- 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
- In a reheat Rankine cycle steam with enthalpy of 3300 kJ/kg is expanded in h.p turbine to a state where enthalpy is 2650 kJ/kg. The steam is further expnaded from a state where enthalpy is 2950 kJ/kg to enthalpy of 2525 kJ/kg & latent heat of 2201 kJ.kg. The work of the cycle & amount of reheat respectively are
- 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?
- In a regenerative Rankine cycle as compared to simple Rankine cycle
- Correlate the following statements i) the volume of water into which steam is condensed in condenser is very much smaller than the volume of steam before condensation ii) the net work of a Rankine cycle is heat supplied in boiler - heat rejected to condenser - pump work
- A Rankine cycle has efficiency of 19.4%. The steam enters the turbine with enthalpy of 32.85 kJ/Kg while heat of water entering the boiler is 423.6 kJ/Kg.the work of the turbine is 560 kJ/ Kg. the pump work is
- Consider the following statements regarding superheating in Rankine Cycles 1. It reduces the specific steam consumption 2. It increases the dryness fraction of steam at the exhaust for the same value of condenser pressure 3. It reduces the cycle efficiency Of the these statements
- Examine follwing two statements & choosethe correct relationship i) for a steam power plant Rankine cycle is preferred over Carnot cycle ii) a pump which will handle the mixture of vapour & liquid is difficult to construct
- 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?
