Question:

A steam power plant operates on an ideal regenerative Rankine cycle with two open feedwater heaters. Steam enters the turbine at 8 MPa and 550°C and exhausts to the condenser at 10 kPa. Steam is extracted from the turbine at 0.6 and 0.2 MPa. Water leaves both feedwater heaters as a saturated liquid. The mass flow rate of steam through the boiler is 16 kg/s. Show the cycle on a T-s diagram, and determine
(a) The net power output of the power plant and
(b) The thermal efficiency of the cycle.
