power of the engine is 2.0 kW. Find loss due to friction as the percentage of brake power.

combustion and expansion process.

8. Air enters the compressor of an ideal air-standard Brayton cycle at 100 kPa, 300 K. The

compressor pressure ratio is 10. The turbine inlet temperature is 1400 K. Determine the thermal

10. Air enters the compressor at 100 kPa, 300 K and is compressed to 1000 kPa. The temperature at

the inlet to the first turbine stage is 1400 K. The expansion takes place isentropically in two

stages, with reheat to 1400 K between the stages at a constant pressure of 300 kPa. A

regenerator having an effectiveness of 100% is also incorporated in the cycle. Determine the

thermal efficiency. Take cp = 1.005 kJ/kg K and γ = 1.4.

11. The gas turbine has an overall pressure ratio of 5:1 and the maximum cycle temperature of

550°C. The turbine drives the compressor and an electric generator. The mechanical efficiency

compressor and turbine are 0.8 and 0.83 respectively. Calculate the power output is kW for an

air flow of 15 kg/s. Calculate also the thermal efficiency and the work ratio. Neglect changes in

kinetic energy, and the loss of pressure in combustion chamber. ( Ans: 655 kW, 12%, 0.168)
