We wish to determine the condenser size (heat transfer area) in the preceding problem. The vapor pressure and temperature at the inlet of the turbine are 12.5 MPa and 650 °C, respectively. The output of the turbine is 100 MW. The vapor pressure and quality at the inlet of the condenser are 50 kPa and 0.96, respectively. The temperature of the cooling water at the inlet of the condenser is 10 °C. The overall coefficient of heat transfer is 6,000 W/m2 ∙K. (a) Assume a flow-rate ratio between the condensing vapor and the cooling water. (b) Evaluate the temperature of the cooling water at the outlet of the condenser. (c) Find the heat transfer area of the condenser.
