# Parametric Study 1 The effect of maximum pressure on the ideal vapor power Carnot cycle

Anonymous

### Question Description

The plant power output will be 25 MW. The condenser pressure will be 10 kPa. The maximum pressures will be 5, 10, 15, 20 MPa. Heat will be added and will be 1000 kJ/kg.

a. If the thermal efficiency were 50%, what would the maximum cycle temperature be?
b. On the same plot, plot TL, TH versus pmax . Use the temperature calculated in a for the maximum scale temperature.
c. On the same plot, plot TL, TH versus pmax . Select the temperature used for the maximum scale temperature.
d. plot thermal efficiency vs pmax . Set the maximum scale thermal efficiency to 0.5.
e. plot thermal efficiency vs pmax . Select the maximum scale thermal efficiency.
f. Plot the net work output vs pmax Set the maximum scale net work output to 500 kJ/kg
g. Plot the net work output vs pmax Select the maximum scale net work output.
h. Plot mass flow rate vs pmax
i. Plot p4 – p3 vs pmax
j. Plot qL vs pmax
k. Be sure to number and discuss all figures in the text.

l. Write a conclusion of the results of your study.
