# Power Cycles

The ideal Rankine Cycle is composed of the following processes: 1 - 2: Isentropic expansion in the engine; S=C 2 3: Constant pressure rejection of heat in the condenser; P=C 3 B: Adiabatic pumping; S=C B 1: Constant pressure addition of heat in the steam generator, P=C

Note: a). In the ideal cycle, the state of steam leaving the steam generator and entering the engine are the same as well as the state of feedwater leaving the pump and entering the steam generator. This means that there is no pressure drop and no heat leakage in the steam line and feedwater line. b). The quantity of the working substance within the system is constant. This implies that there are no leakages in the system.

## Work, WP Exact Pump Work:

Approximate Pump Work The state of feedwater leaving the pump is that of a compressed liquid. Very often, compressed liquid tables are not available, hence, the properties of a compressed liquid are not easily obtainable. Therefore, the exact pump work is difficult to determine. The following assumptions are made in the determination of the approximate pump work. Water is practically an incompressible liquid. Therefore, v3 = vB The change in internal energy is negligible. uB = u3

Approximate Pump Work Energy Balance: Ein = Eout u3 + Wf3 + WP + = uB + WfB WP = WfB Wf3 WP = PB vB P3v3 WP = v3 (PB - P3) Net Cycle Work, WNET
WNET = Gross Work Pump Work WNET = W WP WNET = h1 h2 - WP

Another

method of determining the net cycle work is obtaining it from the T-s Diagram. WNET = area 123B1 = area (123B1) - area (23bc2) = QA - Q R = (h1 - hB ) (h2 h3 ) = h2 h1 (hB h3 ) = h 1 h 2 WP Thermal Efficiency, eC

Steam

Rate, m

Steam rate is the mass of steam used to perform a unit work or the mass flow rate of steam consumed to produce a unit of power. For good design, a lower value of steam rate is desired. A lower value of steam rate means that a smaller quantity of steam is needed to develop the desired power output.

Let: P = power output, kW W = work done by a kg of steam, kJ/kg M = steam rate, kg/kWh By definition:

But:

Then;

## For the Ideal Rankine Cycle:

The ideal Rankine Engine is either a steam turbine or a steam engine. The difference between an ideal Rankine Engine and an ideal Rankine Cycle is that an ideal engine does not include pump work since it is concerned only with all the processes occurring inside the engine. On the other hand, the ideal cycle must include pump work because the pump is needed for the completion of the cycle. And for the engine to be ideal, the expansion process should be isentropic.

Work, W

W = h 1 h2 Thermal Efficiency, ee The definition of thermal efficiency does not directly applies to an engine because no heat is added to it. Instead, it is charged with the enthalpy of steam entering the engine and credited with the enthalpy of saturated liquid at the condensing temperature. When applied to an engine, the thermal efficiency, e=W/QA becomes e=W/EC where EC is energy chargeable against the engine.

EC = enthalpy of steam entering the engine enthalpy of saturated liquid at the condensing temperature

As can be seen from the resulting equation (previous slide), the thermal efficiency is inversely proportional to the heat rate. This means that the lower the heat rate, the higher the thermal efficiency and the higher the heat rate, the lower the thermal efficiency.

Any presence of the following conditions will transform the ideal cycle into an actual one. 1. Pressure drop in the steam generator. 2. Pressure drop in the steam line (1-1). 3. Pressure drop in the condenser. 4. Pressure drop in the feedwater line (B-B) 5. Heat losses in the steam line. 6. Heat losses in the turbine/engine. 7.

Turbo-generator is a generator driven by a turbine. Ideal work, W, is the work done by the steam during a reversible adiabatic expansion process in the turbine. Indicated or actual fluid work, W1 or W, is the work done by the steam during an irreversible adiabatic expansion or polytropic expansion process in the turbine. Brake work, WB, is the useful work, i.e., the available work at the engine shaft. Combined Work, WK, is the electrical energy available at the generator outlet.

Moisture

is harmful to the blades of the turbine. It causes erosion and cavitations of the turbine blades. As have been observed in the previous cycle, the moisture content increases during the later stages of the expansion process. One solution to this problem is by reheating the steam after partial expansion in the turbine. Reheating minimizes the efficiency of the cycle. Steam is usually withdrawn and reheated by few degrees before the saturation point.

The ideal reheat cycle with one stage of reheating is composed of the following processes: 1-2: Partial isentropic expansion in the turbine, S=C 2-3: Constant pressure resuperheating in the reheater, P = C 3-4: Complete isentropic expansion in the turbine, S = C 4-5: Constant pressure rejection of heat in the condenser, P = C 5-B: Adiabatic pumping process, S = C B-1: Constant pressure addition of heat in the boiler, P = C

3 5, p. 88 In a reheat cycle steam at 8.0 MPa and 485C enters the turbine and expands to 1.4 MPa. At this point, the steam is withdrawn and passed through a reheater. It re-enters the turbine at 1.3 MPa and 720C. Expansion now occurs to the condenser pressure of 0.006 MPa. For the cycle and 1 kg of steam, determine (a) QA , (b) WNET and (c) eC . For the engine, determine (d) W, (e) eC and (f) the steam flow for an engine output of 40,000 kW.

Introduction The thermal efficiency of a simple power plant is less than fifty percent (50%). This means that more than half of the heat added to the water in the boiler is just wasted and rejected in the condenser. In order to utilize some of these heats that would have been wasted and rejected in the condenser, part of the throttle steam is extracted or bled for feedwater heating after it has partially expanded in the turbine. The extraction/ bled points occur near the saturation state. The process of heating feedwater in this manner is called regeneration and the cycle governing it is the REGENERATIVE CYCLE.

Increase in thermal efficiency By definition, e=WNET/Q . Examining the equation, the two ways of increasing the thermal efficiency are (a) by increasing the net cycle work and (b) by reducing the heat supplied, QA . The temperature of feedwater entering the boiler in the regenerative cycle (tB5) is higher than that of the original Rankine cycle (tB). Since the feedwater enters the boiler at a relative high temperature, a smaller quantity of heat is needed to transform it to steam than without the regenerative feedwater heating. This in effect tend to increase the thermal efficiency.

Increase

in thermal efficiency It is true that the net work done per kilogram of the throttle steam in the regenerative cycle is less than that of the Rankine cycle as the consequence of the extraction of steam for feedwater heating. This tends to decrease the thermal efficiency. But the rate of decreased in the heat supplied, QA is faster than the reduction rate in the net cycle work, WNET. Therefore, the net result of this is an increase in thermal efficiency.

Decrease

in the moisture content during the later stages of expansion. It is a fact that the quality of exhaust steam for both cycles are the same, i.e., x2 (Rankine cycle) = x3 (Regenerative cycle). But the quantity of exhaust steam decreases in the regenerative cycle as the result of the bleeding process. Therefore, the moisture content decreases.

Alternate Method: Heat Balance: Heat from bled steam = Heat to feedwater m(h2 h5) = mB4(h5 hB4) m(h2 h5) = (1-m)(h5 hB4)

The condensate pump work is often small so that it can be neglected. Neglecting condensate pump work, hB4 = h4

## Recalling isentropic and isometric processes.

Isentropic

Isometric

Neglecting P and K, the area behind the curve on the PV plane represents the work of a steady flow process. For isentropic process: WS = area behind the curve, area 1-2-a-b-1 WS = h1 h2
For isometric process: WS = area behind the curve, area 2-3-c-d-2 WS = v2(P2 P3)

## W = W1-2 + W2-3 W = h1 h2 + v2(P2 P3)

Heat

Ein = Eout QA + h B = h 1 QA = h 1 - h B

Incomplete

expansion engine almost always operate with a low initial pressure, hence, the pump work is very small so that it can be neglected. From the pump energy balance: h B = h 4 + WP WP 0 hB h 4 QA = h 1 h 4
