Rankine cycle operates on boiler pressure 15 MPa and condenser pressure of 30 kPa. Superheated steam enters the high-pressure turbine at 450°C. The high-pressure turbine expands the steam and enters the re-heater at 2.5 MPa. The steam is reheated until temperature reaches 450°C before being expanded in low-pressure turbine to condenser pressure of 30 kPa. Assume the isentropic efficiency of the low-pressure and high-pressure turbines are 94% and 89% respectively, and pump is working isentropically. Neglect the change in kinetic energy, potential energy and pressure drops in boiler and condenser. The net power produced by the plant is 10 MW. Determine the followings: (a) Net heat supplied by boiler (in kJ/kg). [10 Marks] (b) Net heat rejected in condenser (in kJ/kg). [6 Marks] (c) Thermal efficiency of the cycle. [2 Marks] (d) Mass flow rate of the cycle (in kg/s). [1 Mark] (e) Thermal efficiency of the cycle if both turbines replaced with isentropic turbine. [6 Marks] (f) T-s diagram of the cycle with respect to the saturation lines. [5 Marks]
