Air enters the compressor of an air-standard regenerative gas turbine at p1 5 14.7 lbf/in.2 , T1 5 5308R with a mass flow rate of 90,000 lb/h. The compressor pressure ratio is 10, the turbine inlet temperature is 22008R, and the regenerator effectiveness is 80%. Determine the thermal efficiency and net power developed, in hp, for each of the following configurations that build on 9.67(c). (a) Introduce two-stage compression with intercooling between the compressor stages at a pressure of 50 lbf/in.2 Each compressor stage has an isentropic efficiency of 84% and the temperature of the air entering the second stage is 5308R. The isentropic turbine efficiency is 88%. (b) Introduce two-stage expansion with reheat between the turbine stages at a pressure of 50 lbf/in.2 Each turbine stage has an isentropic efficiency of 88% and the temperature of the air entering the second stage is 20008R. The isentropic compressor efficiency is 84%.
