2 Thermodynamics Simple Ideal Rankine Cycle 1-2 isentropic compression with a pump 3-4 constant pressure heat addition in a boiler 5-6 isentropic expansion in a turbine 6-1 constant pressure heat rejection in condenser Other points can be used to describe pipe losses Constant pressure heat addition Constant pressure rejection
3 Thermodynamics We will consider water(steam) as our motive fluid. The steam leaving the boiler (pts. 4 and 5) is usually superheated steam. The steam leaving the turbine (pt 6) is usually high quality steam. Remember that s 5 = s 6 The water leaving the condenser is either saturated liquid or subcooled liquid water. We usually assume that h 2 = h 1 . Or we can estimate h 2 = h 1 + v(P 2 -P 1 ). Let’s work an example problem to illustrate how this works. condenser

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
