A gas turbine power plant uses
solar energy as the source of
heat addition (see Figure for
detailed setup and operating
data). Modelling the cycle as a
Brayton cycle and assuming no
pressure drops in the heat
exchanger or interconnecting
piping, determine: (a) the
thermal efficiency; (b) the air
mass flow rate, in kg/s, for a net
power output of 500kW.
