Finding quality at turbine outlet

  1. Apr 11, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Consider a 210MW steam power plant that operates on a simple Rankine cycle. Steam
    enters the turbine at 10MPa and 500°C and is cooled in the condenser at a pressure of10kPa. The adiabatic efficiency of the turbine and pump is 85% (a) the quality of the steam at
    the turbine exit.


    2. Relevant equations
    x=([itex]\frac{So-Sf}{Sfg}[/itex])


    3. The attempt at a solution
    x=([itex]\frac{6.6-0.65}{7.5}[/itex])
    =0.8

    but the right answer is 0.874

    Found the solution already, thank you
