A turbine is operated at steady state generating the power of 2626 kW. Water vapor at 6 MPa, 600°C enters it and expands to 10 kPa. The mass flow rate is 2 kg/s. Stray heat transfer and kinetic and potential energy effects are negligible.
Determine (a) the quality at the exit, (b) the isentropic turbine efficiency and (c) the rate of entropy production within the turbine, in kW/K
