Q#1

A Carnot heat engine receive heat at 750 K and rejects the waste heat to the environment
at 300 K. The entire work output of the heat engine is used to drive Carnot refrigerator
that removes heat from cooled space at -15C at a rate of 400 kJ/min and rejects it to the
same environment at 300 K. Determine,
a) the rate of heat supplied to the heat engine and
b) the total rate of heat rejection to the environment

Q#2

Steam enters adiabatic turbine steadily at 7 MPa, 500C, and 45 m/s, and leaves at 100
kPa and 75 m/s. If the power output of the turbine is 5 MW and isentropic efficiency is
77 %, determine,
a) the mass flow rate of steam through turbine
b) the temperature at the turbine exit
c) the rate of entropy generation during the process.

Q#3

Steam at 6 MPa and 500C enters a two-stage adiabatic turbine at a rate of 15 kg/s. 10 %
of the steam is extracted at the end of the first stage at a pressure of 1.2 MPa for other
use. The reminder of the steam is further expanded in the second stage and leaves turbine
at 20 kPa. Determine the power output of the turbine, assuming
a) the process is reversible and
b) the turbine has isentropic efficiency of 88 %.

A#3
Assumptions 1 This is a steady-flow process since there is no change with time. 2 Kinetic and
potential energy changes are negligible. 3 The turbine is adiabatic and thus heat transfer is
negligible.
Properties From the steam tables (Tables A-4 through 6)

## T1 = 500C s1 = 6.8826 kJ/kg K

## h3s = h f + x3s h fg = 251.42 + ( 0.8552 )( 2357.5) = 2267.5 kJ/kg

Analysis (a) The mass flow rate through the second stage is
3 = 0. 9 m
1 = ( 0.9 )(15 kg/s ) =13.5 kg/s

## We take the entire turbine, including the connection 6 MPa

part between the two stages, as the system, which is a 500C
control volume since mass crosses the boundary.
Noting that one fluid stream enters the turbine and

two fluid streams leave, the energy balance for this

out = (15 kg/s )( 3423.1 2962.8) kJ/kg + (13.5 kg )( 2962.8 2267.5) kJ/kg = 16,291 kW

(b) If the turbine has an adiabatic efficiency of 88%, then the power output becomes
W a =T W s = ( 0.88)(16,291 kW ) = 14,336 kW
