Thermodynamics

If you get a number from a table can you please show me a picture of where you got it from because that's what i'm mainly confused about.

1. Steam enters an insulated turbine at 100 bar,
400^{o}C. At the exit, the pressure and quality are 200 kPa
and 0.54, respectively. Determine the power produced (kW) by the
turbine if the mass flow rate is 2.09 kg/s. (ans= 2,931.8)

2. Steam
enters a turbine at 8000 kPa, 440^{o}C.
At the exit, the pressure and quality are 150 kPa and 0.74,
respectively. Determine the power produced (kW) by the turbine if
the mass flow rate is 1.71 kg/s and the heat transfer from the
turbine to the surroundings is 3.11 kW.

(ans: 1,931.55)

Answer #1

Steam enters an adiabatic turbine at 140 bar and 560 C and
leaves at 10 kPa. At the exit, the pressure and quality are 50 KPa
and .90, respectively. Determine the power produced (kW) by the
turbine if the mass flow rate is 1.63 kg/s.

NO INTERPOLATION REQUIRED
Air enters an adiabatic turbine at 1000 kPa and 1625 degrees C
(state 1) with a mass flow rate of 5 kg/s and leaves at 100 kPa the
isentropic efficiency of the turbine is 85%. Neglecting the kinetic
energy change of the steam, and considering variable specific
heats, determine:
a. the isentropic power of the turbine
Isentropic power in kW
b. the temperature at the turbine exit
temperature at exit in degrees C
c. the actual power...

A steam turbine has inlet steam pressure p1 = 1.4 MPa
absolute. Inlet steam temperature is T1 = 400
oC. This corresponds to inlet enthalpy per unit mass of
h1 = 3121 kJ/kg. Exit pressure of the steam is p2 = 101
kPa absolute. Exit steam temperature is T2 = 100
oC. This corresponds to exit enthalpy per unit mass of
h2 = 2676 kJ/kg. Inlet speed of the steam is
V1 = 15 m/s and exit speed is V2...

Consider a 210-MW steam power plant that operates on a simple

A power plant uses an adiabatic single-flash process coupled
with a liquid-vapor separator and a turbine. (1) Flash Chamber (2)
Seperator (3) Steam Turbine. Saturated liquid water enters the
flash chamber (which behaves like a throttling valve) at 230
degrees C at a rate of 44 kg/s and leaves at a pressure of 700 kPa.
The stream then enters the separator where the liquid is collected
at the bottom of the unit while the vapor portion of the stream
continues...

A steam power plant runs on a reheat Rankine cycle. Steam enters
both the high and low pressure turbines at 500oC. The maximum and
minimum pressures of the cycle are 10 MPa and 10 kPa, respectively.
Steam leaves the condenser as a saturated liquid. The moisture
content of the steam at the exit of the low-pressure turbine is 4%
if the actual expansion process is adiabatic; 8.5% if the ideal
expansion process is isentropic. The isentropic efficiencies of the
high-pressure...

Consider a steam power plant which operates on the Rankine
cycle. The pressures in the boiler and the condenser are 5000 kPa
and 40 kPa, respectively. The temperatures at the inlet of the
turbine and at the inlet of the pump are 500oC and 70oC,
respectively. The isentropic efficiency of the turbine is 94
percent, pressure and pump losses are negligible. If the mass flow
rate of steam is 10 kg/s. Determine (a) the heat transfer rate in
the boiler,...

1. You are to do a preliminary design study for a small
demonstration steam turbine power plant.
- Steam will be provided by a small steam generator fired by
natural gas. - Your system will take in steam at 30 bar
and 400 oC.
- The steam passes through a two stage turbine. At a pressure of 10
bars, the steam leaves the first stage of the turbine and will pass
through a reheat loop in the steam generator which...

A power plant operates on a regenerative vapor power cycle with
one open feedwater heater. Steam enters the first turbine stage at
12 MPa, 560°C and expands to 1 MPa, where some of the steam is
extracted and diverted to the open feedwater heater operating at 1
MPa. The remaining steam expands through the second turbine stage
to the condenser pressure of 17 kPa. Saturated liquid exits the
open feedwater heater at 1 MPa. The net power output for the...
