Vapor Power Systems, Reheat Cycle

The reheat cycle increases the turbine work and consequently the net work of the cycle. This is accomplished not by changing the compressor work or the turbine inlet temperature but instead by dividing the turbine expansion into two or more parts with constant pressure heating before each expansion.

Increase Rankine Cycle Efficiency, Reheat Cycle

The Rankine cycle is a model used to predict the performance of steam turbine systems. The Rankine cycle is an idealized thermodynamic cycle of a heat engine that converts heat into mechanical work while undergoing phase change. It is an idealized cycle in which friction losses in each of the four components are neglected.
