  6. Question 4 A Curtis stage, Rateau stage and a 50% reaction stage in a steam turbine are examples of (a) Different types of impulse stages (b) Different types of reaction stages (c) A simple impulse stage, a velocity compounded impulse stage and reaction stage (d) A velocity compounded impulse stage, a simple impulse stage and a reaction stage Ans: d

  7. Question 5 A steam turbine receives steam steadily at 10 bar with an enthalpy of 3000 kJ/kg and discharges at 1 bar with an enthalpy of 2700 kJ/kg. The work output is 250 kJ/kg. The changes in kinetic and potential energies are negligible. The heat transfer from the turbine casing to the surroundings is equal to (a) O kJ (b) 50 kJ (c) 150 kJ (d) 250 kJ

  8. Solution 5 Enthalpy drop Power output + losses Or 3000-2700-250 + losses Or losses 50 kJ to the surrounding Ans b
