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 (thermal and pressure) 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.
