Problem 17P

Define turbine efficiency, generator efficiency, and combined turbine-generator efficiency.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution to 17P

Step 1</p>

We need to define the efficiency of turbine, efficiency of generator and the combined efficiency of turbine generator system.

Step 2</p>

Turbine efficiency:

In turbines mechanical energy is extracted from the fluid and it is used to run the shaft. When more of mechanical energy is extracted from the fluid to run the shaft, we will say that the efficiency of turbine is high.

Efficiency of turbine is the ratio of mechanical energy output to the mechanical energy extracted from the shaft.
