Neon, working at a steam power plant, received
a call from a worker who reported that the moisture content
at the exit of the turbine was exceeding its allowed value range. In order to improve this situation,
Neon decides that a reheat process should be added to the cycle. The
moisture content at the exit of the
turbine and the net work output from the cycle
need to be determined to make sure the cycle will run well.
What is known:
- Steam enters the high-pressure turbine at 16 MPa and 600oC
- The pressure in the condenser is 10 kPa.
- The moisture content of the steam at the exit of the low-pressure
turbine is not allowed to exceed 10.0 percent.
