After completing this course, participants should be able to explain the basic processes of a typical steam/water cycle and the way the efficiencies of those processes relate to the overall efficiency of the plant. Participants should also be able to explain the effects of changing or modifying the components of a steam/water cycle and to explain what Rankine efficiency is.

Learning Objectives

  • Determining Steam/Water Cycle Efficiency
  • Describe the basic thermodynamic processes associated with a typical steam/water cycle and explain how to plot them on a temperature/entropy chart.
  • Explain the Rankine method of determining cycle efficiency.
  • Process Effects on Cycle Efficiency
  • Describe the effects of single and multiple reheaters on the efficiency of a steam/water cycle.
  • Describe the effects of feedwater heaters and economizers on the efficiency of a steam/water cycle.
  • Operating Parameters and Cycle Efficiency, Part 1
  • Describe the effects of varying main steam temperature, reheat steam temperature, and main steam pressure on the efficiency of a steam/water cycle.
  • Operating Parameters and Cycle Efficiency, Part 2
  • Describe the effects of varying condenser vacuum, degrees of subcooling in the condenser, and final feedwater outlet temperature on the efficiency of a steam/water cycle.

Good! Well organized, and it was clever to put in the Clausius and Planck axioms for understanding
