Which of the following advantages is not given by superheating in Rankine cycle?
Option (a) is achieved by manufacturing process.
The thermal efficiency of the Rankine cycle is improved by the following methods EXCEPT
Rankine cycle operating on low pressure limit of P1 and high pressure limit of P2
In Rankine cycle the work output from the turbine is given by
Regenerative heating i.e. bleeding steam to reheat feed water to boiler
In a regenerative feed heating cycle, the greatest economy is affected when steam is extracted
Due to steam extraction at several places:
- Loss of work output increases
- Steam rate increase which requires bigger boiler size
In regenerative cycle, feed water is heated by
Reheat cycie in steam power point is used to
Binary vapour cycles are used to increase the
In the binary cycle (two fluid), two cycles with different working fluids are coupled in series. The heat rejected by one being utilized by other cycle. So, overall efficiency of plant increases.
Mercury is a choice with steam in binary vapour cycle because it has
