Unformatted text preview: Page 1 of 1 Problem 2: Consider the Rankine cycle drawn on the board. Suppose the net power output is 10 MW, and the condenser operating pressure is 10 kPa. Assume the water enters the condenser as a saturated vapor and leaves as a saturated liquid. The mass flow rate of steam is 10 kg/s. Neglect kinetic energy changes. Determine: (a) the heat removed in the condenser. (b) the thermal efficiency of the power plant. (c) draw the cycle on an h-s diagram (assume ideal components). Page 2 of 2...
