Homework Problem Ideal cycle 2. (a) A stationary power plant operating on an ideal Brayton cycle has a pressure ratio of 8. The gas temperature is 300 K at the compressor inlet and 1300 K at the turbine inlet. Utilizing the air-standard assumptions, determine (a) the gas temperature at the exits of the compressor and the turbine (b) work input to the compressor and work output of the turbine (c) what percentage of turbine work output is used to drive the compressor (d) the thermal efficiency Real cycle
