Homework Help: Regenerative Air Standard Gas Turbine

  1. Dec 6, 2007 #1
    Hi there, can anyone shead some light on regenerative gas turbine cycle. How to work problems of this sort.

    compressor intake: 0.95 bars @ 22 `C
    pressure ratio 6:1 (compressor), 82% efficient

    turbine inlet: 1100 K. 85% efficient.

    regenerative effectiveness: 70%

    Intercooling and reheating added to the cycle. pressure ratios across the 2-stage compressor and 2-stage turbines and set equal to provide minimum work input and max. output.

    (a) the effect of the addition of the intercooling and reheating on the thermal efficiency obtained with regeneration alone.
    (b) the entropy generation in the compressor, turbine. and regenerator.

    Thank you.
