Explain Reheat Rankine Cycle with its process & with a neat sketch.

3. A simple rankine cycle works between pressure of 30bar and 0.04bar, the initial Condition of steam being dry saturated, calculated the cycle efficiency, work ratio stem consumption?
4. A steam power plant works between 40bar and 0.05bar. If the steam supplied is dry

saturated and the cycle of opertation is rankine, find; 1) Cycle efficiency


2) Specific steam consumption.

PART C (2 x 10 = 20 Marks) 1. Find the efficiency of the prime mover operating on the rankine cycle (a) The steam has a dryness fraction of 0.8 (b) The steam is dry and saturated and (c) The steam is super heated to 350oC. Draw the T-S diagram for each case. Neglect the pump work. between 7bar for the following initial conditions.

2.

A reheat cycle works between 120bar and 0.035bar. The initial steam

temperature is 570oC. After isentropic expansion to dry saturated conditions, the steam is reheated to 500oC. Determine the efficiency of the cycle.

3.

Explain with diagram the help of heat diagram a regenerating cycle.

Derive also and expression for its thermal efficiency. 4. In a steam power cycle, the steam supply is at 15 bar and dry saturated

the condenser pressure is 0.4bar, calculate the carnot and rankine efficiency of the cycle neglect pump work.
