Reheat Rankine Cycle - Processes with h-s Diagram

Reheat Rankine Cycle – Processes with h-s Diagram

Reheat Rankine Cycle is essentially a modification of simple rankine cycle. In reheat rankine cycle, the following improvements are made to increase the efficiency of rankine cycle. Lowering the condenser pressure Increasing the temperature of steam while entering the turbine Large variation in pressure between boiler and condenser Implementation of reheat and regenerative system in the [...]

Simple Rankine Cycle – Processes with h-s Diagram

Simple Rankine cycle is an ideal vapour cycle. It plays a major role in steam power plants. This cycle is mainly based on the conversion of input heat energy into output power, using turbine. The working fluid at the inlet repeatedly undergoes change of phase and in successive operations, energy is transmitted and output power [...]
