A large stationary diesel engine produces 5 MW with a thermal efficiency of 40%. The exhaust gas, which we assume is air, flows out at 800 K and the temperature of the intake air is 290 K. How large a mass flow rate is that, assuming this is the only way we reject heat? Can the exhaust flow energy be used?
Solution 33 HP
Step 1 of 6
We are required to calculate mass flow rate
