Hi,
I was attempting another turbomachinery question and am struggling with a few concepts. The question is:
"A single stage gas turbine for power generation is designed for the following overall duty:

 Inlet stagnation pressure = 3 bar, inlet stagnation temperature = 1000 K
 Rotational speed = 3000 rpm

 Operating fluid is air, ## \gamma ## = 1.4, ## c_p ## = 1004 J/kgK
 The totaltototal isentropic efficiency ## \eta_{TT} = 0.93 ##
Perform a mean line analysis and find the following
(a) Total temperature and total pressure at the turbine outlet"
Attempt:
From the power and mass flow, we can get the specific work done (per second):
[tex] \dot w_s = \frac{P}{\dot m} = \frac{4.2 \times 10^6}{70} = 6 \times 10^4 [/tex]
Then we can use the steady flow energy equation to write (## \dot q = 0 ##):
[tex]  \dot w_s = \Delta h_0 \rightarrow  \dot w_s = c_p \Delta T_0 [/tex]
I am confused of how to utilize the totaltototal isentropic efficiency. If we are told what the machine was designed for, has the efficiency already been accounted for in the power, or do we need to include it separately. I.e. is the 4.2 MW output after accounting for the 93% isentropic efficiency, or is that the 'ideal 100% efficient' condition?
Thank you for any help.
