Question #187477

An ideal reheat turbine with one stage of reheat receives steam at 8.0 MPa,

480°C. Reheat pressure is 0.83 MPa and exhaust pressure is 0.007MPa. The

work is 1559 KJ/kg and the thermal efficiency is 41.05%. Find the

temperature of steam leaving the reheater.

Given work = 1559 KJ/kg

ηh = 41.05%

When, steam is stable at P₁ = 8 MPa, T1 = 480°C

h1 = 3319.6 KJ/kg; S = 6.6613 KJ/kg.K at P2 = 0.83 Mpa.

Sg2 = 6.625 KJ/kg.K

S1 = S2 = Sg2

Entry to reheater in Saturated vapour:

T2 = 170.5°C

h₂ = h21g = 27689 kJ/kg.

(h1 - h6) + (h2 - h3) = 3747.807

(3349.6-170.626) + (h3 - 2768.9) = 3797.807

h3 = 3387.773 kJ/kg.

let cp1v = 2.1 kJ/kg.K

h3 = 3387.733 kJ/kg.K

From Superheated steam tables corresponding to h3 = 3387.733 kJ/kg.K, and

P3 = 0.83Mpa

T3 = 454°C
