3.3   Terminal conditions


In this section, the effects of certain terminal conditions of the steam cycle are considered in detail. The impact on efficiency is evaluated and the constraints faced by the designer are discussed.

      3.3.1. Effect of steam inlet conditions

      3.3.2. Effect of reheat conditions

      3.3.3. Effect of pressure loss in pipework and valves

      3.3.4. Effect of final feed temperatures

      3.3.5. Effect of exhaust pressure
