Consider a power plant based on an ideal Rankine cycle. Determine (a) the thermal efficiency of this power plant if the steam exits the boiler at 2 MPa and 320°C and is condensed in the condenser at a pressure of 20) kPa. Re-evaluate the thermal efficiency of this power plant if it is reconfigured in a manner that (b) allows for superheating of the steam to 640°C and (c) allows for the boiler pressure to be increased to 10 MPa while maintaining the exit temperature from the boiler at 640°C
