Calculate the entropy for a power plant

  1. May 26, 2005 #1
    i have to calculate the entropy for a power plant. to calculate entropy i have to get some data for the power plant
    1.) net power output
    2.)the type and amount of fuel
    3.)the power consumed by the pumps, fans and other auxiliary equipment
    4.)stack gas losses
    5.) temperatures at serveral locations
    6.) the rate of heat rejection at thecondenser

    i call few power plant but they told me that they can give this information and they told me that i can visit the www.nrc.gov[/URL] and try to find information from this site but i didnt find anythings there. if any body now the site where i can find data or the power plant or if any one has this data please let me know as soon as possible

    Maybe if you asked about one of the coal fired plants you would get some answers. :smile:

    I found the book "Chemical Thermodnynamics at a Glance" by H. Donald Brooke Jenkins particularly useful.
