Determine the rate of entropy generation in the surrounding air, in W/K. 7–160 In large steam power plants, the feedwater is frequently heated in closed feedwater heaters, which are basically heat exchangers, by steam extracted from the turbine at some stage. Steam enters the feedwater heater at 1 MPa and 200°C and leaves as saturated liquid at the same pressure. Feedwater enters the heater at 2.5 MPa and 50°C and leaves 10°C below the exit temperature of the steam. Neglecting any heat losses from the outer surfaces of the heater, determine (a) the ratio of the mass flow rates of the extracted steam and the feedwater heater and (b) the total entropy change for this process per unit mass of the feedwater. 7–161 Reconsider Prob. 7–160. Using EES (or other) software, investigate the effect of the state of the steam at the inlet to the feedwater heater. Assume the entropy cen54261_ch07.qxd 11/18/03 9:58 AM Page 347...
