Boiler and Condenser Pressure
In the previous lesson, we learned that increasing the boiler pressure and decreasing the condenser pressure increases the net work output and the
thermal efficiencyof the
ideal Rankine Vapor Power Cycle.
The main problem with this method is that the quality of the turbine effluent decreases sharply leading to increased wear or damage to the turbine rotor.
The six methods we will study in this lesson address this problem.
Increase boiler P.
Decrease boiler P.
