V . SRINIVASA RAO AM

Efficiency of any plant or equipment is the ratio of output to its input expressed as percentage . output and input are expressed in same physical units. The output is the electrical energy sent out to the grid and input is the heat energy of the fuels fired in boiler. This is normally termed as overall station efficiency.
Thus Over all station efficiency = (Output of ation/Input of station) X 100 = Energy sent out(KW) X 100 Fuel burnt (kg) X GCV fuel (Kcal / Kg)

= = =

## Over all station efficiency

= Energy sent out (KW) X 100 Fuel burnt (kg) X GCV of fuel (Kcal / Kg) 1250940 X 860 X 100 1156 x 1000 x 3000

31.02 %.

Heat Rate:
Heat rate is more usual way of defining and expressing overall turbo- alternator efficiency. Heat Rate = Heat added to steam in boiler (Kcal) Electrical energy sent out (kwhr) Unit of heat rate is thus Kcal/Kwhr

Heat rate is the heat input to turbine needed to produce 1Kwh of electricity.

Efficiency =

## kwh = 860 kcal

So efficiency = 860 Heat rate x 100

## Example for 50 MW turbine

Heat rate = 2330 kcal/kwh Efficiency = 860 2330 x 100

= 36.91%

## Consider a regenerative cycle with single feed water heater.

The steam (at pressure p1) enters the turbine at point A. Let a small amount of wet steam(say m kg) after partial expansion (at pressure p2 ) be drained from the turbine at point B and enters the feed water heater. The remaining steam ( at pressure p2) is further expanded in the turbine and leaves at point C . This steam is then condensed in the condenser. The condensate from the condenser, is pumped into the feed water heater, where it mixes up with the steam extracted from the turbine. The proportion of the steam extracted is just sufficient to cause the steam leaving the feed water heater to be saturated.

## Now consider 1 kg of steam entering the turbine at point A.

Let h1 = Enthalpy or total heat of steam entering the turbine at A, h2 = Enthalpy or total heat of bled steam, h3 = Enthalpy or total heat of steam leaving the turbine at C hf2 = Enthalpy or sensible heat of feed water leaving the feed water heater hf3 = Enthalpy or sensible heat of steam leaving the condenser, and m = Amount of bled steam per kg of steam supplied

We know that heat lost by bled steam = Heat gained by feed water

m(h2-hf2) = (1-m)(hf2-hf3) mh2-mhf2 = hf2-hf3-mhf2+mhf3 Therefore m = (hf2-hf3)/ (h2-hf3) We know that mass of steam in the turbine, per kg of feed water, between A and B is 1 kg. Therefore work done in the turbine per kg of feed water between A and B = (h1-h2)

## between B and C= (1-m) kg

Therefore, Work done in the turbine between B and C = (1-m) (h2-h3) Total work done = (h1-h2)+(1-m)(h2-h3) And total heat supplied per kg of feed water = h1-hf2 Therefore, Efficiency of the cycle including the effect of bleeding, = Total work done / Total heat supplied = ((h1-h2) + (1-m)(h2-h3))/h1-hf2

NOTE:
If there had been no regenerative feed heating (or in other words, m=1),then the efficiency of the cycle will be the same, as that of rankine cycle. In this case, Rankine efficiency,

Efficiency

= (h1-h3)/(h1-hf3)

Problem : In

a regenerative cycle, having one feed water, the dry saturated steam is supplied from the boiler at a pressure of 30 kg/cm2 and the condenser pressure is 1 kg/cm2. The steam is bled at a pressure of 5 5kg/cm2. Determine the amount of bled steam per kg of steam supplied and the efficiency of the cycle. What would be the efficiency without regenerative feed heating ? Also determine the percentage increase in efficiency due to regeneration.

Given: p1 = 30 kg/cm2 , P2 = 5 kg/cm2 , P3 =1 kg/cm2 Enthalpy of steam at 30 kg/cm2, h1 = 670 kcal/kg Enthalpy of steam at 5 kg/cm2, h2 = 588 kcal/kg Enthalpy of steam at 1 kg/cm2, h3 = 531 kcal/kg From steam tables, enthalpy or sensible heat of water at 5 kg/cm2 ,hf2 = 153 kcal/kg

And enthalpy or sensible heat of water at 1 bar, hf3 = 100kcal/kg Amount of bled steam per kg of steam supplied We know that amount of bled steam per kg of steam supplied m = (hf2-hf3) / (h2-hf3) = ( 153 - 100)/ (588-100) = 0.11 kgs. EFFICIENCY OF THE CYCLE We know that efficiency of the cycle, = (h1-h2)+(1-m)(h2-h3))/(h1-hf2) x100 =(670-588) + (1-0.11)(588-531)/(670-153) x100 =(82 + 0.89x57)/ 517 x100 = 25.67%.

## We know that efficiency of the cycle, = (h1-h3)/(h1-hf3) x100 = (670-531)/(670-100) x100

= 139/570 x100
= 0.243 OR 24.3 %

In this case, the steam is removed from the turbine at two points B and B1.It is then fed into two open feed water heaters 1 and 2 The steam (at pressure p1) enters the turbine at point A. Let a small amount of steam (say m kg) after partial expansion (at pressure p2 ) be drained from the turbine at point B and enter the feed water heater 1.similarly,let another small amount of steam (say m2 kg ) after further expansion (at pressure p3 ) be drained from the turbine at point B1 and enter the feed water heater 2. The remaining steam equal to (1-m1m2) kg (at pressure p4) is further expanded in turbine, and leaves it at point C .

The steam is then condensed in the condenser . The condensate from the condenser is pumped into the feed water heater , where it mixes up with the steam extracted from the turbine. Now consider 1 kg of steam entering into the turbine at A .
Let,
h1 = Enthalpy of steam entering the turbine at A

## h2 = Enthalpy of steam bled at B

h3 = Enthalpy of steam bled at B1

## h4 = Enthalpy of steam leaving the turbine at C

hf2 = Enthalpy of feed water leaving the feed water heater 1 hf3 = Enthalpy of feed water leaving the feed water heater 2

hf4 = Enthalpy of feed water leaving the condenser m1 = Amount of steam bled at B per kg of steam supplied, and m2 = Amount of steam bled at B1 per kg of steam supplied As the that heat lost by bled steam at B = Heat gained by feed water m1 (h2-hf2) = (1-m1) (hf2-hf3) m1h2-m1hf2 = hf2-hf3-m1hf2+m1hf3 m1 = (hf2-hf3) / (h2-hf3) Similarly, heat lost by bled steam at B1 =Heat gained by feed water m2 (h3-hf3) = (1-m1-m2) (hf3-hf4) m2h3-m2hf3 = hf3-hf4-m1hf3+m1hf4m2hf3+m2hf4

m2 = ((1-m1) (hf3-hf4) / (h3-hf4) We know that the mass of steam in the turbine per kg of feed water between A and B is 1 kg.

Work done in the turbine per kg of feed water between A and B = h1-h2 And mass of steam in the turbine per kg of feed water between B and B1 = (1-m1) kg Work done in the turbine between B and B1 = (1-m1) (h2-h3) Similarly, mass of steam in the turbine per kg of feed water between B1 and C = (1-m1-m2) kg Work done in the turbine between B1 and C = (1-m1-m2) (h3-h4)

Thus total work done per kg of feed water = (h1-h2) + (1-m1) (h2-h3) + (1-m1-m2) (h3-h4) And total heat supplied per kg of feed water = h1-hf2

## Efficiency of the plant including the effect of bleeding,

Efficiency = Total work done/Total heat supplied = (h1-h2) + (1-m1) (h2-h3) + (1-m1-m2) (h3-h4) h1-hf2

NOTE: When the bleeding takes place at more than two points, the efficiency of the plant may be obtained by proceeding in the same way as explained above.

In a steam turbine plant the steam is generated and supplied to the turbine at 50 kg/cm2 and 370deg C, the condenser pressure is 0.1kg/cm2 . Two feed heaters are used, the steam in the heaters bled at 5kg/cm2 and 0.5kg/cm2. In Each heater the feed water is heated to saturation temperature of the bled steam. The condensate is also pumped at this temperature into the feed line immediately after the heater. Find the masses of the steam bled in the turbine per 1kg of steam entering the turbine. calculate the thermal efficiency of the cycle SOLUTION: Given: P1 = 50 kg/cm2 , P2 = 5 kg/cm2 , P3 = 0.5 kg/cm2, P4= 0.1 kg/cm2, T1= 370C Enthalpy of steam at 50 kg/cm2, h1 = 742.77kcal/kg Enthalpy of steam at 5 kg/cm2, h2 = 663.95 kcal/kg

Enthalpy of steam at 0.5 kg/cm2, h3 = 599.47kcal/kg Enthalpy of steam at 0.1 kg/cm2, h4 = 561.26 kcal/kg hf2 = 152.87 kcal/kg(at 5kg/cm2) hf3 = 81.34 kcal/kg(at 0.5 kg/cm2) hf4 = 45.80 kcal/kg(at 0.1 kg/cm2) Mass of steam bled in turbine: We know that mass of steam bled at B, m1 = (hf2-hf3) / (h2-hf3) = (152.87 81.34) / (561.26-81.34) = 0.123 kgs.

And mass of steam bled at B1, m2 = (1-m1)(hf3-hf4) / h3-hf4 = (1-0.123)(81.34-45.8) / (59.47-45.8) = 0.056 kg

## Thermal Efficiency of the Cycle:

We know the work done from A to B per kg of feed water = h1-h2 = 742.77-663.95 = 78.81 kcal/kg

## Similarly work done from B to B1 per kg of feed water = (1-m1)(h2-h3)

= (1-0.123)(663.95-599.47)
= 56.55 kcal /kg And work done from B1 to C per kg of feed water = (1-m1-m2)(h3-h4) = (1-0.123-0.056)(599.47-561.26)

= 31.38 kcal/kg

Therefore total work done = A to B + B to B1 + B1 to C = 78.81+ 56.55+ 31.38 = 166.74 kcal/kg Heat supplied = h1-hf2

= 742.77- 152.87
= 589.9 kcal/kg

Therefore, work done thermal efficiency of the cycle = -------------x100 Heat Supplied
