Determine the cycle efficiency and work ratio for vapour power cycle

A power generating plant uses steam as a working fluid and operates on a Rankine cycle between a source temperature of 311.1 °C (boiler pressure 100 bars) and a sink temperature of 32.9 °C (condenser pressure 0.05 bars) .

Determine the cycle efficiency and work ratio if all the processes are reversible. Also determine the rate of steam generation if the power plant output is 1 MW.

(b) How the cycle efficiency and work ratio would be affected if isentropic efficiency of turbine is 0.8 and the saturated liquid coming out of the condenser is compressed to the boiler pressure with an isentropic efficiency is 0.9?
