Unformatted text preview: the turbine exit, ( , we apply the turbine efficiency: ) ( ) The turbine work becomes
( ) ( ) Thus, the Back Work Ratio (BWR) is defined as Regenerator Analysis:
To find , we apply the regenerator effectiveness: ( ) ( ) To find the heat transferred from the turbine exhaust gas to the compressor exit gas, apply the steady-flow
conservation of energy to the compressor gas side of the regenerator.
̇ ̇ ̇ ̇ ̇
̇ = ( ) ( ) Using , we can determine the turbine exhaust gas temperature at the regenerator exit
̇ ̇ ̇ ̇ ̇ ̇ (
̇ ) Heat supplied to cycle:
Apply the steady-flow conservation of energy to the heat exchanger for process 5-3, we obtain a result
similar to that for the simple Brayton cycle.
( ) ( Cycle thermal efficiency:
The net work done by the cycle is
The cycle efficiency becomes ) )...
