Analysis of a Vapor Power Plant8/20/96ME1361 Thermo II3.0 AbstractThe objective of this study is to construct a computer model of a water vapor power plant. This model will be used to calculate the state properties at all points within the cycle. Included is an analysis of the ideal extraction pressures based on the calculated values of net work, energy input, thermal efficiency, moisture content, and effectiveness.4.0 Body4.1 IntroductionSystem to be AnalyzedSteam enters the first turbine stage at 120 bar, 520 °C and expands in three stages to the condenser pressure of .06 bar. Between the first and second stage, some steam is diverted to a closed feedwater heater at P1, with saturated liquid condensate being pumped ahead into the boiler feedwater line. The Terminal Temperature Difference of the feedwater heater is 5°C. The rest of the steam is reheated to 500°C, and then enters the second stage of expansion. Part of the steam is extracted between the second and third stages at P2 and fed into an open feedwater heater operating at that pressure. Saturated liquid at P2 leaves the open feedwater heater. The efficiencies of all pumps are 80%, and the efficiencies of all turbines are 85%.Throughout this report the states will be referenced as depicted above with the numbers 1-13.The analysis of the system will involve the use of the Energy Rate Balance to isolate the specific enthalpies and associated values of temperature, pressure, specific volume, and steam quality. The Entropy balance equation will be used to calculate the specific entropy at all the above noted states.Energy Rate Balance (assume KE&PE=0)dEcv/dt = Qcv-Wcv+Smi(hi) - Sme(he)Entropy Rate BalancedScv/dt = SQj/Tj + Smi(si) - Sme(se) + scvFor simplicity, it is assumed in all calculations that kinetic and potential energy have a negligible effect. It is also assumed that each component in the cycle is analyzed as a control volume at steady state; and that each control volume suffers from no stray heat transfer from any component to its surroundings. The steam quality at the turbine exits will also be constrained to values greater than or equal to 90% (Moran, 337).4.2 Code DevelopmentThe C program "finalproject.c" was developed to calculate the state values given the constraints listed in section 4.1. The program structure consists of three parts:Header/variable declarationCalculation sectionData Report sectionThe Header section includes all the variable declarations, functions to include and system definitions. To obtain accurate data values, this program uses floating point values. The Calculation section is the function that is used to calculate all the state values. In essence this section consists of two nested while() loops that are used to vary the extraction pressures from 12000 kPa to 300 kPa. The while loops are set to terminate when the steam quality becomes less than 90% as defined in the constraints in 4.1. The Data Reporting section is found within the...

The growth of one plant will also be affected if there is another plant growing next to it. If a plant is alone, it will grow faster since it will not have any competition to get light and water, but if there are two plants next to each other, they will struggle and will not grow as much as the plant that is alone. The growth of plant requires a copious

The Effect of the Presence of Light on the Amount of CO2 Produced by a Plant

1041 words - 4 pages HypothesisIf a plant is placed in the dark then the amount of CO2 produced will be higher, versus, if a plant is placed in the light, then the amount of CO2 produced will be lower. This is because all organisms, even plants, carry out the operation of aerobic cellular respiration, with the following equation:C6H12O6 + 6O2 6CO2 + 6H2O + ATP + HeatCarbon dioxide is a product that is then used to fuel photosynthesis, which occurs in all plants. The

There must be a balance of power for there to be stasis. Where there is no balance of power and one nation can obliterate another’s ability to
