# Turbine

## 1. A turbine is supplied with steam at 40bar and 450

o
C, and exhausts at 4bar. If the machine
operates with an isentropic efficiency of 60%, determine the steam flowrate is required to produce
a power output of 1MW and the exhaust steam temperature.

2. A turbine is supplied with 90tonne/h of steam at 450
o
C and 80bar. If the isentropic efficiency of
the turbine is 80% and the exhaust steam is at 2.5bar, determine the condition of the exhaust and
power output. Why is the quality of the exhaust steam lower for the reversible turbine than that for
a real turbine?

In conclusion,
