For Energy/Mechanical Engineering Students.
Level UG Year: 2 and 3 of 4 year engineering program.
Step by step calculations on a full cycle.
The design process requires you select the plant, each plant has its pressure-temperature settings/requirements, you then follow through the full calculation process using tables.
Steam plants have come thru with higher efficiencies, and their use remains stable and in some regions increased. The increase is primarily due to combined cycle power plants operations.
This was done in Excel.
You may use it for course work or review.Prime-Mathcad may be applied for this whole process, you can take it further.
