Unformatted text preview: K. Both the compressor and the turbine can be considered ideal. Find the minimum mass ow rate, and associated pressure ratio, necessary for the turbine to produce a power output of 2 MW. 3. Consider problem 1), with the same r P and q H . Say that the turbine and the compressor have equal isentropic eciencies of c = t . Assuming constant specic heats, calculate and plot the thermal eciency of the cycle as a function of c ranging from 1 (isentropic behavior) downwards. What value of c results in zero thermal eciency for the cycle? 1...
