Sample Problem on Rankine cycle

Known: water is the working fluid in an ideal Rankine cycle. The condenser pressure and turbine inlets states are specified.


  • Each component in the cycle is analyzed as an open system operating at steady-state.
  • All of the processes except the turbine are internally reversible.
  • The turbine is adiabatic and the pump is isentropic.
  • Condensate leaves the condenser as saturated liquid.
  • No shaft work in the boiler or condenser.
  • Changes in kinetic and potential energies are negligible.

Schematic and Given Data:

Pcondenser = 0.18 bar

Pboiler = 48 bar

Tboiler = 480⁰C
