Unformatted text preview: boiler pressure is kept at 8 MPa, the reheat section at 600 kPa and the condenser at 15 kPa. The moisture content of the steam at the exit for both turbines is 10 %. Find the temperature at the inlet of each turbine and the cycle’s thermal efficiency. Solution: Assumptions: 1. Steady operating conditions exist. 2. Kinetic and potential energy changes are negligible. From the steam tables (Table A-4, A-5, and A-6), ( ) ( )( ) ( ) = 8.0968 kJ/kg ( ))( ) ( ))( ) ( ( And ) ( ) ) ( Thus, ))( ))( ) QUESTION 3: [55 points] A gas-turbine engine running on regenerative Brayton cycle has air entering the compressor at 125 kPa and 300 K and is compressed to 1000 kPa. The regenerator has an effect...
