Question

A mass flow of 8 kg/s of water vapor at 30 bar and 400 C flows steadily through the inlet an insulated turbine.

The pressure of water reduced to 1 bar at the turbine outlet. Neglecting kinetic and potential energy effects, find the following:

a) The maximum power output in kW generated by the turbine and its corresponding outlet temperature?

b) The actual power output in kW generated by the turbine and its corresponding outlet temperature if its adiabatic efficiency is 75%?

c) sketch the reversible and irreversible processes in a T-s diagram with respect to the saturation lines?
