Unformatted text preview: 3. In normal operation, a paper mill generates excess steam at 20 bar and 400°C. It is planned to use this steam as the feed to a turbine to generate electricity for the mill. There are 5,000 kg/hr of steam available, and it is planned that the exit pressure of the steam will be 2 bar. a) Assuming the turbine is well insulated (no heat losses), what is the maximum power that can be generated by the turbine? (7 pts) b) A real turbine operating under similar conditions to part (a) has an efficiency of 80%. Determine the amoun of work performed by this turbine and the outlet temperature. (8 pts)...
