Unformatted text preview: Page 1 of 1 Problem 2: A Rankine-cycle power plant has one stage of reheat. The turbine inlet is 5 MPa at 500 o C. After expansion to 0.5 MPa the steam is reheated to 500 o C and expanded in a second turbine to a condenser pressure of 7.5 kPa. The steam leaves the condenser as saturated liquid. Calculate the cycle efficiency, using a pump efficiency of 0.6 and turbine efficiencies of 0.8. Neglect kinetic energy changes and pressure drops. Page 2 of 2...
