Unformatted text preview: iveness of 0.78 and the air enters the turbine at 1300 K. The compressor efficiency is 0.80 and the turbine efficiency is 0.88. Assuming air is an ideal gas with constant specific heats and using the cold-air standard assumption, determine: (a) (b) (c) Back Work Ratio (BWR) Heat transfer in the regenerator Cycle thermal efficiency Solution: Compressor Analysis: The isentropic temperature at compressor exit is ( () ) ( () )( ) To find the actual temperature at compressor exit, ( , we apply the compressor efficiency ) ( ) Since the compressor is adiabatic and has steady-flow ( Turbine Analysis: ) ( ) The conservation of energy for the turbine, process 3-4, yields for constant specific heats ̇ ̇( ) ̇ ( ̇ Since and ( ̇ ) ) , we can find the isentropic temperature at the turbine exit.
