1.a) Deduce the expression for air standard efficiency of Brayton cycle interms of
(i) compression ratio and
(ii) the pressure ratio.
b) Describe why the Brayton cycle is most appropriate for gas turbine power?
2.a) What is the difference between closed cycle and open cycle gas turbine power plants.
b) Design a neat and suitable diagram of regenerative gas turbine and reheater and also describe it working with a help of a suitable p-v diagram.
3.a) prepare down the methods that are used for improving efficiency of a gas turbine plant.
