# Cogeneration plant

## Homework Statement

The question asked about a cogeneration plant with water as a working fluid, but I am not sure what type of cycle it belongs to. The plant uses utility heat and steam can be throttled.

## Homework Equations

The system was assumed to be ideal, no pressure drop, no heat loss and is internally reversible.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Brayton, ideal Rankine cycle?

I would think it would be the ideal Rankine cycle.

I believe it's regenerative rankine cycle?

Yeah that's it, I couldn't remember how the regenerative cycle's T-s diagram looked like. But it should be that one.

I can leave out the throttling valve in the ts diagram right?since the valve does not give power...but increases pressure?

I think you mean pump and not throttling valve? But you'd need to have it, else your diagram won't make a cycle.

Ya okay I got it. Thnks for ur input! :)
