1. Consider a steam power plant operating on the simple ideal Rankine cycle. Steam enters the turbine at 3 MPA and is condensed in the condenser at a pressure of 75 kPa. The quality of the steam exiting the turbine is (x=0.88614). Sketch and number a diagram of the power plant. Sketch and number the T-s diagram. Determine the thermal efficiency of this cycle. Assume the water is a saturated liquid at the exit of the condenser.
