Unformatted text preview: ”INDIAN INSTITUE OF TECHNOLOGY Date: ............... FN/AN Time: 3 hours Full Marks: 100 No. of Students:' 215 Spring End-Semester Examination, 2008 Mechanical Engineering Subject No.: ME22002 . 2"d Year B.Tech (H) ‘ Subject Name: Thermodynamics Answer all the questions. Marks for the questions are shown on the margin. Use steam tables (supplied with the Question Paper) as and when necessary. For air, use cp=1.004 kJ/kgK and cv=0.717 kJ/kg/K. For water, use c=4.2 kJ/kgK. 1. The net power output of the turbine in an ideal reheat-regenerative Rankine cycle is 100 MW. Steam enters the high-pressure (HP) turbine at 90 bar, 550°C. After expansion to 7 bar, some of the steam goes to an open heater and the balance is reheated to 400°C, after which it expands to 0.07 bar. a. What is the steam flow rate to the HP turbine ignoring KE and PE effects? b. What is the total pump work? c. Calculate the cycle efficiency. d. if there is a 10°C rise in the temperature of the cooling water, what is the rate of flow of the cooling water in the condenser? e. If the velocity of the steam flowing from the turbine to the condenser is limited to a maximum of 130 m/s, find the minimum diameter of the connecting tube. f. Draw a schematic component layout and the T-s diagram of the cycle. [5+3+7+4+4+5]:28 2. a) Liquid octane enters a steady—ﬂow combustion chamber at 25°C and 8 bar at a rate of 0.8 kg/min. It is burned with 200% excess air that is compressed and preheated to 500 K and 8 bar before it enters the combustion chamber. After combustion, the products enter an adiabatic turbine at 1300 K and 8 bar and leave at 900 K and 2 bar. Assume all gases to be ideal gas. Considering complete combustion and an ambient temperature of 25°C, determine: i. The heat transfer rate (kW) from the combustion chamber ii. Power output (kW) of the turbine - [8+6] b) In a typical gas turbine plant reheater (which is a second combustion chamber), only fuel is added while in the primary combustion chamber, both fuel and air is supplied. Explain this precisely. [4] c) Cite one reason (using suitable cycle diagram) for not using Carnot cycle as a vapour power cycle. [4] 3. Consider a gas-turbine cycle with two stages of compression and two stages of expansion. The overall pressure ratio is 9. The air enters each stage of the compressor at 300 K and each stage of the turbine at 1200 K. The pressure at the entrance to the first compressor is 100 kPa. The pressure ME22002 Thermodynamics, Spring End-Sem 2008 1 ratio for each stage of compression or expansion is 3 in order to attain minimum compression work; _~ and maximum expansion work. The turbine expansion is isentropic and the isentropic efficiencyof _ the compressor is 80%. Determine the ratio of turbine work to compressor work and-the thermal efficiency of the cycle, assuming (a) no regeneration and (b) ideal regeneratibn. Explain why the ratio of turbine to compressor work is less for a gas-turbine cycle than the ratio of turbine to pump work in a steam power cycle. Assume specific heats of air to be constant. Draw a labelled equipment layout and the corresponding T-s diagram of the regenerative cycle. [6+12+3+4] 4. (a) Compressed air enters a well insulated counterflow heat exchanger, operating at steady state, at 610 K, 10 bar and exits at 860 K, 9.7 bar. Hot combustion gas enters as a separate stream at 1020 K, 1.1 bar J and exits at 1 bar. Each stream has a mass flow rate of 90 kg/s.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
