Reversible Power Cycle
A proposed power cycle, consisting of strictly reversible processes, is
to have a thermal efficiency of 30% while receiving heat from a hot
reservoir and discharging heat to a nearby stream at 250C.
0oC = 273.15 oK
- Determine the minimum temperature of the hot reservoir.
- How much heat has to flow from the hot reservoir if the
power produced is to be 120 kW.
- How much heat will be discharged into the stream ?
