I'm experimenting with a heat source for a steam turbine. I have the specs for the turbine and the necessary conditions for operation, but at this point in my design I need to figure out the volume of the actual boiler/reservoir. A direct answer or the right equation would be infinitely helpful. Thanks in advance!

Specs:

Superheated steam 10- 12 bars abs. 200-220 degrees C

Steam consumption: .04kg/second

basic steam rate: 9.8kg/kwh

Other useful I formation: For the 15 kW you will need a steam boiler of minimum 150 kW / 160 kW / 180 kg/h.
