(a) The pressures in kPa appear above.

(b) Steps 2--3 and 4--1 (Fig. 8.2) are isentropic, for which S3=S2 and S1=S4.
Thus by Eq. 6.82):

(d) The rate of heat rejection, Step 3--4:

3 H4 = 699.083
H3 = 1.919 × 10

Qdot34 := mdot⋅ ( H4 − H3) Qdot34 = −1.22 × 10 (kJ/s)

(e) Wdot12 := 0 Wdot34 := 0

Wdot23 := mdot⋅ ( H3 − H2) Wdot23 = −873.222

At point 3 the pressure must be such that the steam has a condensation
temperature in feedwater heater I of 195 degC, 5 deg higher than the
temperature of the feed water to the boiler at point 1. Its saturation pressure,
corresponding to 195 degC, from Table F.1, is 1399.0 kPa. The steam at point 3
is superheated vapor at this pressure, and if expansion from P2 to P3 is
isentropic,

If we find t7, then t8 is the mid-temperature between t7 and t1(190 degC), and
that fixes the pressure of stream 4 so that its saturation temperature is 5 degC
higher. At point 6, we have saturated liquid at 20 kPa, and its properties from

We apply Eq. (7.25) for the calculation of the temperature change from point 6
to point 7. For this we need values of the heat capacity and volume expansivity
of water at about 60 degC. They can be estimated from data in Table F.1:

At points 9 and 1, the streams are compressed liquid (P=6500 kPa), and we

The temperature at point 8, t8 = 130.38 (see above) is the saturation temperture in
feedwater heater II. The saturation pressure by interpolation in Table F.1 is
273.28 kPa.

Isentropic expansion of steam from the initial conditions to this pressure results in
a slightly superheated vapor, for which by double interpolation in Table F.2:

Basis: Complete combustion of 1 mol CH4. Reactants are N mol of


air and 1mol CH4.
Because the combustion is adiabatic, the basic equation is:

The value for air is given above. For methane the temperature change
is very small; use the value given in Table C.1 for 298 K: 4.217*R.

Assume expansion of the combustion products in the turbine is to 1(atm),


i.e., to 1.0133 bar:
PD := 1.0133bar PC := 7.5bar
The pertinent equations are analogous to those for the compressor. The
mean heat capacity is that of the combustion gases, and depends on the
temperature of the exhaust gases from the turbine, which must therefore be
found by iteration. For an initial calculation use the mean heat capacity
already determined. This calculation yields an exhaust temperature of
about 390 K. Thus iteration starts with this value. Parameters A, B, and D
have the final values determined above.

c) The thermal efficiency is low and high fluid rates are required to generate
reasonable power. This argues for working fluids that are relatively
inexpensive. Candidates that provide reasonable pressures at the
required temperature levels include ammonia, n-butane, and propane.
